Mary Benton Mize was born on April 12, 1940 in Dallas. She went to be with The Lord on December 3, 2017 at her home in New Waverly. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Tommy, daughter Tommie, grandson Shannon, her parents Elmer and Mary Benton.

She is survived by her daughter Mary Gaskins and husband Doug of New Waverly, 3 grandsons Tommy Gaskins and wife Juli of New Waverly, Danny Gaskins and wife Maria of Willis, Brandon Rogers of New Waverly, 5 great grandchildren: Austin and Lillian Gaskins, Sylus Rogers, Rusty and Aniston Gaskins, 3 sisters-in-laws Arlene and Eddie Kuta of New Waverly, Doris Jo Engleking of Bryan, Gina Needham and husband Dean of Dayton. Also numerous relatives and close friends.

Mary worked for Roberds Pharmacy for 17 years and then retired with Tommy to fish, hunt & enjoy the grandchildren. She had an avid love of animals; especially her babies Concho & Poncho. She was very courageous and treated her 6 years of dialysis treatment as her "job". She loved BBQ'ing and spending time with the family.

Special thanks to Davita, Renal Physicians of Conroe, Dr. Simbahan and Dr. Startz, Cornerstone and Heart to Heart Hospice for their care of our Grandmother & Mom. Also thanks to Tender Paws for caring for her "babies".

A Memorial Service will be held at First Baptist Church in Willis on Friday, December 8th at 1:00 PM.
