Mary Ellen Proctor

1927 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Mary Ellen Proctor

Mrs. Mary Ellen Annis Proctor died April 12, 2013 after a short illness. A fifth generation Floridian, she was born January 11, 1927 in DeFuniak Springs, Florida to Nathaniel Percy and Pauline Cawthon Annis. She was a graduate of Walton High School and FSCW/FSU 1949. After teaching elementary school she married Edward L Proctor Jr. of Tallahassee in 1951 and became a full time homemaker. He died in 2008.

She is survived by sons Edward L. Proctor III and wife Lisa, Lead Hill Arkansas, Charles William Proctor, Tallahassee, Florida, and David Annis Proctor and wife Helen, Tallahassee, Florida, and also beloved grandchildren Celia Proctor, Baltimore, Maryland, Melissa Proctor, Dallas, Texas, Caroline Proctor, University of Central Arkansas, Conway, and Duncan Proctor, Tallahassee. She is also survived by one sister, Clara Hendren, Madison, Indiana, and numerous favorite nephews, nieces, and cherished friends.

She and her husband were descendents of the earliest colonial families of Virginia and Massachusetts. With great interest and love of natural history, they spent many happy, sunlit hours planting azaleas, camellias, gardenias, and spireas at their home and at their little nature preserve north of town. They especially enjoyed the flocks of wood ducks, the great blue herons, and other varied birdlife including the songs of the wood thrushes. She was a member of St. Johns Episcopal Church.

The family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00pm, Sunday at Bevis Funeral Home (850/385.2193). Graveside services will be held at Oakland Cemetery on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Laura Jepsen Institute at Lichgate, P.O Box 11305, Tallahassee, Fl 32302
