The homegoing of Mary S. "Granny" Tucker was Friday, November 14, 2014. Funeral service for Granny will be 2 p.m. Monday, November 17, 2014, at Gray Brown-Service Mortuary Chapel with Scott Whetstone officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Gardens. The family will receive friends today from 2-4 p.m. at the funeral home. Born July 25, 1934, she was married to the love of her life for 53 years until Floyd's homegoing in 2011. Mary is survived by a large and loving family, Terrie Blount (Barry), of Pelham, Jenny Dempsey (Blake), Jason Tucker (Susan) and Leanne Houston (Jim), all of Oxford. Mary loved her children, grandchildren, and "great grands", including David (Jennifer), granddaughter-in-law, Melinda and A.J. (Christina) Blount, Jared, Brad, Micah Dempsey, Emily & Wesley Tucker, Jameson & Clay Houston, Aidan, Audrey, Jesse and Victoria Blount. Mary was preceded in death by her husband Floyd; her sister, Edna Smith; parents, Atys & Della Smith and a grandson 2LT Matthew Blount. Pallbearers will be grandsons. Mary gave birth to only four children but was "granny" to many. She loved her "babies" and talked about them to anyone who would listen. She served faithfully in the nursery at New Haven Baptist Church 30 plus years until her husband's failing health lead her to resign. She was an avid Braves fan, never met a stranger, and never met anyone she didn't like. Since Mary loved missions so much we would like to ask that instead of flowers please make a donation to WMU at New Haven Baptist Church, Gideons, or any other mission organization spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
