Mary and Dalbert are back together again. Dalbert returned to his Heavenly Father on January 30, 2002 and has been patiently waiting since then. We often spoke of this and Mom would laugh nicely as we all knew Dalbert was not the most patient person!
Mary was born in Jones County, Texas on September 21, 1021. She grew up on a farm, learned to work hard from her parents, Roscoe and Cornelia Greenway. Mary was very proud of the fact that she and her sister Carolyn could do anything better than her three brothers, except pick cotton where her brother Whit was the star. Mary and Dalbert married on June 28, 1942 during the first part of WWII. Dalbert served his country and Mary waited on the farm for his return. Upon his return, they moved to Borger, Texas where they raised three boys, Bert, Royce and Joe. After the boys were in school, Mary returned to college, earned her teaching degree, and began teaching. She was most proud of the fact that all her family, including Dalbert, earned college degrees. May and Dalbert retired beside peaceful LBJ lake in Granite Shoals, Texas and lived there until Dalbert went ahead.
Mary left this life on October 19, 2012 to return to her Heavenly Father and Dalbert. At the time she was living in Spanish Fork, Utah with her son and his wife. Mary enjoyed 91 years surrounded by family and friends. Mary's son Joe passed away March 2, 1990. Mary is survived by two sons Bert (wife Christy) of Dallas, Texas and Royce (wife Cookie) of Spanish Fork, Utah and four grandchildren: Joe, Randy, Daniel and Gina.
Funeral service will be at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home, Marble Falls, Texas Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 2:00 PM. Interment to follow at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park, Burnet, Texas, right next to Dalbert and Joe.
