Mary Frances May, 94, Columbia, KY (1926-2021)
Mary Frances (Edwards) May passed away peacefully on May 10, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. She was 94 years old.
The funeral service will be held at 1pmCT on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, 200 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, with Dr. Michael O'Neal officiating. Burial will follow in Columbia Cemetery.
Visitation is requested after 11:30amCT on Saturday.
She was born December 27, 1926, in Campbellsville, Kentucky, to the late Walter and Nina Yarberry Edwards. Mary attended Columbia High School and Lindsey Wilson College. While at Lindsey Wilson, she met Darrell May and they were wed on June 14, 1946.
Darrell and Mary moved to Chattanooga, TN and this is where Mary found her love for china and crystal while employed by Fischer-Evans Jewelry. They belonged to Brainerd Baptist Church at the time. Darrell's job took them to New Orleans, LA. Her love for New Orleans was a very special time in her life. She loved to take the streetcar to work at Adler's Jewelry Store where she worked until retirement. They attended First Baptist Church of New Orleans.
Mary retired to Columbia, Kentucky on her family farm. Darrell and Mary lived with her sister, Emily Cain. Mary and Emily were soon known in town as "The Sisters". There was not a function in the area they missed! Mary was very active in her community being a member of Columbia Baptist Church, WMU and the Women's Club. She was on the Board of Trustees at Campbellsville University for years. Mary had a love for the Lord, gardening, knitting, exercising and cooking.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Darrell, a son, Dusty and her sister, Emily.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Campbellsville University or Columbia Baptist Church would be appreciated. These can be left at the funeral home.
