Known for making people happy, Mary was very active with Skyline Baptist Church in Branson, where she played the flute in the praise team. Mary enjoyed a myriad of crafts, including crocheting, painting, and drawing. She will be dearly missed, and her grandchildren were her greatest joy.
She is preceded in death by her father and her son, Bradley Hodge.
Mary is survived by her daughter, Nikki Hodge and fiancé Mark Davis of Forsyth, Missouri; daughter, Sandie Hodge of Hollister, Missouri; grandchildren, Devyn and Bentley Hodge of Hollister, Missouri; her mother, Judith and husband Basil Cline of Palestine, West Virginia; her sister, Amy and husband Glenn Thornburg of Parkersburg, West Virginia; and lifelong friend and caregiver, Jamie Jones of Rockaway Beach, Missouri. She is also survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins, as well as numerous extended family.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 31, 2016, at Skyline Baptist Church with Pastor Norm Howell officiating.
