Mary was a long time member of Lone Oak First Baptist Church. Mary had a passion for writing poetry for family and friends whether it was for sad times or for the happy times. At times it may be just a “thinking of you” card and inside was a poem or a bookmark. She was very active in supporting her son’s ministry of music to the armed forces, and was his number one prayer warrior.
