Mary's Obituary

Mary Flory, age 80 of Hempstead, TX passed away on July 26, 2020.  She was a person of faith that walked by the light of God with every step and enjoyed the friendships made while serving the community at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church.  She cherished time with her husband Gene riding in their antique cars, spending time with their friends and enjoying the outdoors. She loved unconditionally and wholeheartedly.  She had a special place in her heart for animals, especially her dear sweet Chloe.  Also, Mary enjoyed traveling with her great granddaughter Jadyn and will enjoy watching her play soccer in college. She enjoyed keeping up with newest great grandbabies, Allen and Nicole. Funny, intense, strong-willed, loving, spontaneous and overall firecracker, are words often used to describe her.  Mary lived life to the fullest while enjoying the simple things in life, like zip-lining and parasailing.
