Mary E. Bumgarner

Mary E. Bumgarner, daughter of Frank and Lillie (Curnutt) Poynor, was born June 10, 1923, in Strafford, Missouri and departed this life Sunday, October 30, 2011, in Strafford Care Center, Strafford, Missouri at the age of eighty-eight years.

Mary grew up in Strafford, off the Old Wire Road and attended Lamb School, a one-room country school house. She graduated from Strafford High School in 1942.

Mary was united in marriage to Wayne Bumgarner November 9, 1946, and they spent almost 65 years together. During this time, they were blessed with and raised five sons. In 1955, work took Wayne to California and Mary relocated with the boys. Wayne and Mary moved back to Strafford in 2001.

Mary was a loving and dedicated wife, mother and grandmother in addition to a cherished sister-in-law and aunt. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
