MARION -- Dora McGee, 79, passed away peacefully with her family by her side at 6:20 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 25, 2010, at her home.

She was born Dec. 9, 1930, in Chambord, France, the daughter of Fulgencio and Isibelle (Martinez) Mesas.

Dora was united in marriage to Jack D. McGee on Sept. 18, 1954, in La Chapelle, France, and together they shared more than 56 years of marriage.

Her working career was with Olin Corporation for many years until her retirement.

She is a member of Oak Grove Gospel Mission Church, southwest of Marion. Her church, home and family were a very important part of her life. When she was not working, she was busy managing her home and seeing to the needs of her family. The "McGee Home" was always a gathering place for the family and their many friends. Dora will be remembered as being a servant to those she saw who had a need.

She is survived by her husband, Jack D. McGee of Marion; daughter and son-in-law, Judy and Pete Lannom of Marion; two sons and daughters-in-law, Mike and Lou Ann McGee of Patoka and Gary and Jackie McGee of Marion; eight grandchildren, Mandi Gualdoni, Josh Lannom, Sarah Lannom, Misty Philpot and her husband, Jim, Melissa McGee, Cody McGee, Nathan McGee and Rachel McGee; four great-grandchildren, Anthony, Gracie, Saige and Max; and her brother and sister-in-law, Andre "De De" and Nadine Mesas of Paris, France.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Josephine; and four brothers, Louis, Alfred, Joseph and Manuel.

Arrangements for Dora McGee have been entrusted to Wilson-McReynolds Funeral Home, 900 N. Court St., of Marion.

Services will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 28, 2010, at Wilson-McReynolds Funeral Home, with the Rev. James Jackson presiding. In-terment will be in Oak Grove Cemetery, southwest of Marion.

Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
