Mary Fromlath Obituary

Mary Fromlath, age 91, was greeted by her husband, the late Bernard "Slats" Fromlath, and family in Heaven early Thursday morning, July 3, 2014.

She was the mother of Gary Fromlath who married Ginny, of Alamo, Texas, and Peggy Davis and the late Tom Edd Davis of Alamogordo. She was a long time resident of Donna, Texas. Mary made New Mexico her home on Oct. 31, 2001. She enjoyed helping her daughter and son-in-law at their business, The Blue Stone.
She worked for many years for Groce Weadern Co. and Rogers & Sons. She loved her job with computers and had a good understanding of their technology. Mary was a member of the First Christian Church in Donna, Texas, and of Gateway Baptist Church in Alamogordo. She belonged to the American Legion Auxillary and served for many years. She was also member of the Daugthers of the America Revolution and the Kiwanis Club of Alamogordo.

She is survived by one brother, John Palko; one sister, Orfa Akerman;, one sister-in-law, Elizabeth Palko, and many nieces and nephews.

She was grandma to Terry Davis (who married Cyrene), Dr. Steve Davis, Kelly Davis, and Lisa Davis Wright ( who married Zachary). She loved being great-grandmother to Krystal (who married Dan), Brandon, Matthew, Michael, Elizabeth, Jonathan, & Emmaleigh. She was best friends with Tom Edd's sister Mary Lou Lee and her family.

Mary loved birds, sewing and cooking. She was famous for her cinnamon rolls, homemade rolls and divinity. If there is a kitchen in heaven, you can bet she will be in it cooking up a storm! She always enjoyed gatherings with family and friends.

The family will have a graveside service and burial at Valley Memorial Gardens, 3605 N. Taylor Rd., Mission, Texas, on Thursday, July 10 at 3 p.m.
Friends and family are invited to attend the service.

A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, July 27, at Gateway Baptist Church, 980 W. Highway. 70, at 3 p.m.
Please join her daughter, Peggy Davis, and grandson, Kelly Davis in honoring her.
Mary loved afternoon "Tea Parties." Following her service there will be cake and punch served in the Fellowship Hall at the church.

Mary dearly loved all the many friends she made while living in Alamogordo.
The family would like to thank all the ""earth angels"" at Betty Dare, who cared so lovingly for her.
Thank you to the many friends and caregivers who made each day brighter for her with their visits.
