Ward MABRY Obituary
MABRY, Ward Charles Ward Charles Mabry, born June 11, 1921, in Cobb County, Georgia, died November 23, 2016, in Carroll County, Georgia. Mr. Mabry was the fourth son of Harley and Gustie Mabry, growing up during the bleakest times of the Great Depression. Unlike this father and older brothers who were carpenters, he chose to enter the electrical trade and hung out his shingle as Mabry Electric Company in 1954. He closed his business in 1983. In retirement, Mr. Mabry followed his passion for experimentation in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and history. He searched for minie balls from the Civil War in Cobb County and Indian artifacts on his farm in Haralson County with equal fervor. He was an avid baseball fan and, most important, the Braves. His family was always at the forefront of his devotion. Martha Louise Popham Mabry was his committed partner until her death in March, 2003. Together they forged the embodiment of the All American family, leading by example to their children and grandchildren in Christian faith, ethics, love, and humor, all in appropriate portions. He is survived by four children, Janet Gipson Caswell, Richard Mabry, Ren? Sims, and Jody Harper, eleven grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren, two sons-in-law, two grand sons-in-law, five grand daughters-in-law and one brother, Billy Mabry of Marietta. Funeral services will be Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 2:00 P.M. at Bremen First United Methodist Church. Interment will follow in Buchanan City Cemetery. On-line condolences may be posted at www.hutchesonsmemorialchapel.com. Hutcheson's Memorial Chapel & Crematory, Buchanan is in charge of the arrangements.
