Mary Loraine Peets Buffett
Birth: Aug. 14, 1921
Crystal Springs
Copiah County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Sep. 25, 2003
Baldwin County
Alabama, USA

Mary Loraine "Peets" Buffett, 82, passed away Thursday evening surrounded by family and friends.

Born in Crystal Springs to Thomas Delos Peets and Bessie Love Thompson, "Peets" (as she was known) went to work at Alabama Dry Dock and Shipbuilding Co. in 1948. She held various positions including being the first ever equal employment coordinator.

She retired in 1979 as the first female assistant director of industrial relations. Following that, she fulfilled a lifelong dream of completing her college degree and graduated Cum Laude from University of South Alabama at age 64.

Residing on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay for past 27 years, she delighted in gorgeous sunsets, the scent of magnolias and visits from loved ones. She also enjoyed writing poetry, the comfort of her beloved dogs and throwing a good party. She touched the lives of everyone she met and will be missed dearly.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, James Delaney Buffett, Jr.

She leaves behind three children, her son, James William 'Jimmy' Buffett (Jane), daughter, Loraine Marie Buffett McGuane (Thomas) and Lucy Anne Buffet, nine grandchildren, Heather Hume Nelson, Mara Delaney Buffett, Melanie Leigh Buffett, Savannah Jane Buffett, Ann Buffett McGuane, Sarah Delaney Buffett, Cameron Marley Buffett, Thomas Francis McGuane IV, and Margaret Kidder McGuane, and four great grandchildren, Thomas, Charlie, Maisie and Walker James.

Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at Saint Lawrence Catholic Church in Fairhope. Funeral arrangements by Fairhope Funeral Home and Crematory, 19698 Greeno Road, Fairhope, Alabama.
