Dear family, I have many special memories with Mary Alice from her birth throughout her life. She was an example of strength in always having a positive attitude. She radiated the love of family under all circumstances. Her tender influence lives on in those whose lives she encountered. Her children are a reflection of what a loving family is.
We admire the wonderful love and service given to her as she endured the challenge she had. She was a southern steel magnolia.
It is our prayer that in the days ahead the memories shared will bring comfort to each of you. You have a big extended family who love all y'all. Our prayers will continue.
With love eternally,
Aunt Mary Ann, Uncle Jack, cousins Justin and Jordan

Love Brandon, Sarah, Braylee, Blayne & Brayden

I was so sorry to hear of Mary Alice's passing. She was always a sweet and loving cousin. My mother loved her dearly! I pray that her family will be comforted by the Lord's Holy Spirit, to give them strength during their time of grief. She will be missed. Love to all her family, her cousin Edna.
