Mary Briles Anderson, daughter of Oliver and Katie Briles, was born March 29, 1919. She passed away Sept. 25, 2000, at the Lucas County Health Center in Chariton.

There were many things that Mary liked to do. One of those was to work at the Senior Center which she did for about 18 to 20 years. She went to country music jams about four nights a week and also enjoyed listening to gospel music. Mary enjoyed rodeos and she was a big Chicago Cubs fan. She enjoyed collecting stuffed bears, all kinds of knick knacks, and many other things. Each thing she collected held special memories for her.

Mary belonged to the Eagles and she used to bowl on the Eagles Auxiliary bowling league. She liked to go shopping in Des Moines when she got the chance. She was always thankful when people took her places and bought her things. Mary enjoyed visiting with her friends and spending time with her family. She looked out for others and gave to them generously.

She is survived by her children: Mike of Chariton, Emmet of Melrose, Mass., Roger of Oskaloosa, Toni Banks of Moline, Ill., Robin Anderson of Leon, Iowa, and Mary Ann Wells, also of Leon. Her son, Steven, preceded her in death five years ago.

Memorial services were held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, 2000, at the Fielding Funeral Home with the Rev. Carla Hillyer officiating. Burial was in the Chariton Cemetery. Honorary bearers included Debbie Dyer, Lori Graves, Sandy Shelton and Trenton Brown.
