HOME GOING SERVICE FOR MAMA

Mary Elizabeth Gray
1912-2010

Mary Elizabeth Gray was born on May 13, 1912, in De Valls Bluff,  Arkansas. Mama went to Heaven on Christmas Day 2010. She married Perry Gray on July 8, 1929. Daddy went home to be with the Lord on January 11, 1990. Daddy and Mama had six children; Edward (Perry), Paul (Irvin), Faye Laverne, Bob (Glynn), Jerry (Gerald Wayne), and Sandy (Sanford Lynn). Mama had 17 grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren, and 8 great great grandchildren. 

Last night we gathered at the Brown Funeral Home in Clarendon, Arkansas for visitation. We were able to see many of our family and friends. It was a wonderful time in rejoicing over our mother's life and legacy! Today we will have a celebration service for her at 1 pm in Roe, Arkansas. 


I want to thank Jerry and his dear wife Ronnie for all that they did for Mama. They were sent of God at a time when no one else could have cared for Mama like that wonderful family. Jerry, Ronnie, and Kevin, their son, loved and cared for Mama like no one could have! GOTTA LOVE FAMILY!


I want to thank everyone for the flowers, cards, and calls. I am going to miss my Mama. She was the hardest working lady I have every known. She was the spiritual stalwart one in our family. Filled with integrity and honesty! I thank the Lord for her legacy of truth! Buy the truth and sell it not symbolized her!
