On October 5, 2014, Mary, 93, passed peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones. She was born August 30, 1921 in Philadelphia PA, raised in Atlantic City, NJ and then lived most of her adult life in Seattle, WA. 

She is survived by 5 children, 17 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Mary carried herself with exceptional grace and will always be remembered for her vivacious warmth, fearless approach to life, and extraordinary compassion for all those that crossed her path.

I couldn't imagine having a better grandmother than Mary. She was always loving, playful, generous, and positive. She treated every single person who came into her life with the same compassion she showed her family. My husband, Andrew, asked her if he could propose to me at her 90th birthday party and she said she would be delighted. She nudged him to do it in front of the whole family, and so he did! It was one of the greatest days of my life and I am forever grateful that we were able to share it with her on her special day. We are so sad to see her leave this world, but in our hearts we know that she will always be with us. We love you, Grandma.

Grandma Mary was very special to all of us. She was always very caring and loving toward our family. Her heart was as big as they come. She would go out of her way for anybody to make sure they were happy and had what they needed. Her unselfishness to others was one of her greatest virtues. She will be missed terribly, and her smile will live in our hearts.

All our love to the Fouts family.

Dearest Mary,

Your in Gods house now. Blessed are those who seek and follow his word. You will always have a place in my heart. Aaden and Cora will miss you so much. We will all continue to talk to them about what a wonderful great grandmother you were. Thank you for helping raise Jon and for giving so much of your self to your family. I hope I can be thought of as admirably as you always will be. Would you please be my guardian angel? Live safe in the arms of Jesus until we meet again. Love Peggy
