FORREST -- Mary M. Brewer Bohanon, 83, of Belleville, born Feb. 14, 1922, in Verona, died Sunday (Aug. 21, 2005) at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Belleville.

Mrs. Bohanon was retired from St. Elizabeth's Hospital. She was a licensed beautician in Forrest; was a farm wife in Livingston County from the late 1940s to early 1970s; and was an aide at Fox Children's Center for develop-mentally disabled children in Dwight. She was co-founder of Cox Interior Supply Inc., Belleville.

Mrs. Bohanon was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Lorena Wilkes Brewer; her first husband, George Yanek who died in WWII; her second husband, James Kenneth Bohanon who died on April 3, 2003; two brothers, John Brewer and Elmer Brewer; one sister, Ruth Halligan; and numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Surviving are two sons, James (Lynda) Bohanon and Dan Bohanon of Belleville; a daughter, Mary Beth (Dennis) Galvin of Belleville; a sister, Florence Harrison of Aurora; a sister-in-law, Mary Brewer of Streator; a brother-in-law, Ardis (Irma) Bohanon of Delavan; seven grandchildren, Spc. James (Rachel) Bohanon; Ben, Andy and Hayley Bohanon; and Sam, Dennis Jr. (Stephanie) and Eric (Janet) Galvin; and seven great-grandchildren, Carly, Caitlin, Randa, Justin, Christa, Kyle and Olivia.

Mom had unconditional love for her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She had a wonderful trait of listening to any and all stories from family, friends and neighbors. She always lent her ear, was a loyal friend, and was loved, respected and a joy to all. She was an avid gardener, cook and seamstress.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family for the care of Dan Bohanon.
