Mary Gillham Bagwell was born April 15, 1935, in Amarillo to George and Ethel Gillham. She married Rex Bagwell on July 22, 1954, in Groom. He preceded her in death in December 2010. She was a rancher and worked for Bekins for many years. She was a loving wife, mother, and Grandmary. She was a member of the Church of Christ in Claude for many years, and she was always willing to lend a helping hand and cook a meal for anyone that walked through her door. She loved all sports and was especially passionate about women’s high school basketball. Mary was a three time All State Guard for the Claude Lady Mustangs from 1951-1953, where her team won the State Championship each of those years. Mary had a great sense of humor, and her smile could light up a room. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren more than anything. Mary was a very special woman, and will be missed by everyone that knew her.
