Mary was born Aug. 15, 1930, in Chatham, La. She married Lanis Barnes of Pasadena on Aug. 24, 1947. The couple enjoyed 51 years of marriage and had three children.
Kindness would best describe Mary. She was devoted to her church work and spent most of her life teaching Sunday school and working with youth. She was always thinking of others and spent hours sending out birthday or get-well cards to friends. She was quick to respond to a friend in need with financial help or to prepare a meal or a fresh baked pie. She was an animal lover and when unable to accept any more strays, she would find someone who would. She was a devoted wife and loving mother. She will be deeply missed by her family and the many friends whose lives she touched. Mary was a member of Harvey Baptist Church in Stephenville.
Mary was preceded in death by husband, Lanis Barnes of Stephenville; parents, Charles and Etta Womack; and brother, Donald Womack of Chatham, La.
