Mary Belle Martin was the daughter of Claude and Okla Lee Bearden Martin. She married Joe Dean Crowder and together they had two children: Bobby Joe Crowder and Beverly Ann Crowder. Mary was preceded in death by both her parents, her husband on Oct 3 1953 and her daughter on Sept 23, 2007. She also preceded her last husband George Perkis in death (1996). She is survived by her son, Bobby Joe Crowder; 3 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren; brother-in-law Garland Crowder and wife, Dottie; sisters-in-law Norma Lee Crowder Capps, Martha Jane Crowder Farley (Leroy Farley), Dorothy Henson Crowder; five nephews and three nieces, plus a host of other family members. Mary was a licensed cosmetologist.
Something that I have heard Mary say more than once:
"Those Crowders sure know how to have fun; I just love hanging around those Crowders."
Mary was born in a town called Wahilla, Oklahoma. I personally have never heard of that town, and when I tried to find if it still existed and what county it was in, I was unable to find it. I would imagine that the county that she lived in would have been Ottawa County, since that is the Oklahoma County that is nearest Seneca, Missouri... the town of her sweetheart, Joe Dean Crowder.
Thank you Michael Dunn for sponsoring Mary's memorial.
