Mary N. Higdon, beloved and treasured daughter, sister and mother was the daughter of George William(Bill)1909-1993 and Nina Louise Higdon(nee Campbell) 1916-1984. Mary was well read, had a sharp intellect and a wonderful sense of humor. She read more books in a month than most people read in their lifetime. Mary was blessed with a gift for music, she played the piano, the guitar and had a lovely alto voice. She was a natural born athlete and loved the outdoors.
Mary was very beautiful with black hair, brown eyes and possessed a smile that could light up a room. She was married in 1967. Mary received a B.A. from Troy University and graduated with honors. She had two sons, Jason and Jared Dour.
In 1982 it was discovered that she had multiple sclerosis, however she continued her career as a social worker in Butler County. Eventually she succumbed to the disease and became bedridden. Her husband divorced her.
She lived out the remainder of her days with her brother Bill and his wife Jean at their home by Lake Martin. Mary was lovingly cared for by Jean and Bill until her death two days before the new millennium.
Mary was dearly loved by her family and she will always be greatly missed. She is buried in Elizabeth Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery near her parents.
Her cousin Larry Campbell, a famous sculptor, designed and carved Mary's headstone.
