Mary Cothran
  • 69 years old
  • Date of birth: Jul 9, 1938
  • Date of passing: May 9, 2008

Our mother was the most beautiful person in the world.  She taught us to look at and appreciate  beauty in small things.   She loved to garden and enjoyed all the little creatures that entered her backyard. She never used chemicals or pesticides because she believed that all things had a right to be, and to do otherwise would upset the balance.  She often took pictures of bugs.  She enjoyed watching and identifying birds.   She was also a very accomplished musician.  She spent hours playing the harp, piano, and guitar.  A wonderful stain glass artist.  The crocheter of countless Afghans.  She had so many talents and skills.  A very giving woman with a beautiful heart.  A quick wit and a sharp tongue.  Most importantly she was my best friend. 

She passed away from cancer on May 9th 2008 with her two children by her side. We will never forget you.  She leaves behind 5 grand children.
