Mary enjoyed spending her time doing jigsaw puzzles, watching her favorite t.v. programs, having her morning coffee and caring for her pets alongside Gary. She cherished every minute of life through spending time with her many children, grand children and great-grandchildren. Her love for all was unmistakable and shined light into all that she met. She enjoyed the company of outstanding neighbors who were just as close as family to her and the love they have shown over the years was truly appreciated by Mary and Gary alike. She loved the Lord with all her heart mind and soul, and made it evident to those in her life. Mary peacefully joined the Lord and is whole again in Christ.
She was preceded in death by mother Lenora McMan and stepfather Colen McMan, sons Danny Ray Conn, Sam Conn, and Gary Williams Jr.
