Long-time Ballinger resident, Marsha Jo Fry, went to be with her Lord on July 24, 2009.
There will be a visitation and viewing from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 26, 2009 at Ave B Church of Christ. Memorial service is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Monday, July 27, 2009 at Ballinger High School Auditorium.
She was born February 6, 1956 in Ft. Worth to Joel and Alyne Jo (Klepper) Amyett. Her mother preceded her in death. Marsha is survived by her husband of 32 years, Mike of Ballinger; sons, Aaron Fry and wife, Lauren, of Houston, and Brandon Fry of Abilene; father, Joel Amyett of Grapevine; and sister, Debbie Sandoval of Kyle. Additionally, she is survived by numerous extended family members, all of whom loved her deeply.
Marsha was a member of the Ave B Church of Christ where she was active in all aspects of the church. Her special love was teaching Sunday school to children. Never being satisfied with simple Bible lessons, she was always looking for new and creative ways to share the good news of God's love.
Marsha's first and foremost love was her sons. Throughout their youth she was their biggest supporter in sports, academics and spiritual matters. She always encouraged them to be the best they could and took great delight in every phase of their lives.
Marsha received her bachelor's degree from Abilene Christian University and was a high school teacher for 24 years in the Ballinger Independent School District. She loved her students and encouraged them to reach for the greater things in life. Marsha had great respect for BHS faculty and students, all of whom supported her unconditionally through her 1 ½ year battle with cancer.
The family would like to thank you for the support given to us over the past several months. Marsha loved the community of Ballinger. Your love and concern for her has been overwhelming. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes any memorial donations be given to Lifeline Chaplaincy, 1415 Southmore Blvd, Houston, TX 77004.
"If will, grit and determination could cure breast cancer, she would have been cured before diagnosis." -Dr. Frankie Holmes, Marsha's doctor and friend.
