Mary Agnes Buckler, 96 of Leonardtown, Maryland, passed away on March 31, 2013, at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital, surrounded by her family. Born July 3, 1916, in Morganza, Maryland, she was the daughter of the late Martha Lucretia Graves and Henry Arthur Wood.

Mrs. Buckler has the distinction of being the first female jailor in the State of Maryland. She assumed this role upon the death of her husband. They had managed the facility jointly until Mr. Buckler's untimely passing in 1964. She held the position of St. Mary's County Jail Matron for 20 years. After leaving her position at the jail, she worked as a switchboard operator at the St. Mary's County Courthouse for 14 years.

She took great pride in her flower garden and if she was not in the garden you could find her in the kitchen cooking for the family.

Mrs. Buckler is survived by her daughter, Linda Buckler Mattingly and her husband, J. Maguire III "Mock" of Leonardtown, Maryland. She is also survived by her two daughters-in-law, Jean Hayden Buckler and Rose Marie Cusic Buckler; grandchildren, Kenny (Dee) Buckler, Roy (Marie) Buckler, Ronnie (Wanda) Buckler, Chris (Patty) Buckler, Michelle (Ray) Roberts, Jay (Tabitha) Mattingly and Jonathan (Leanne) Mattingly; great-grandchildren, Katie Buckler, Ryan and Todd Cease, Aaron and Alex Buckler and Geoffrey Buckler.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard Theodore "Turk" Buckler, Sr., her two sons, Howard Theodore Buckler, Jr. and William Leroy Buckler, Sr. and by her grandson, James Howard Theodore "Teddy" Buckler. She was also predeceased by her nine siblings, Lynch Wood, Schmidt Wood, Johnson Wood, Charles Wood, James Wood, Martha Bailey, Lucy Mattingly, Estelle Fitchett and Eleanor Bowles.
