Mary was born on November 13, 1924 in rural Moultrie County, the daughter of Fred J. and Florence (Beebe) Warner. She married Marion A. “Cobb” Carroll on February 10, 1942. He preceded her in death on December 26, 1996.

Survivors include two sons: Norman “Nub” (Diana) Carroll of Tuscola, IL and Ed Carroll of Atwood, IL; one daughter: Donna Joann (Ken) Wagner of Deltona, FL; three brothers: Kenneth and Dicky Warner both of Atwood, IL, and Larry Warner of Bourbon, IL; sister: June Tuggle of Sullivan, IL; sister-in-law Maxine Creamer of Assumption, IL; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and many nephews, nieces, and other family members.

Mary supported Marion with the family farm and homemaking. She was modest, funny, hard-working, and caring. She made excellent homemade beef and noodles and Salisbury steak. She mashed potatoes from her garden and deviled eggs from her chickens. She loved hosting summer get-togethers and Christmas parties.

Above all Mary was devoted to family. She remembered everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries, wedding dates, and family history. She treasured family photos and posted them prominently throughout the home. Even when her health declined, she kept in touch with cards or a phone call. She will be greatly missed.
