Mary was born on January 3, 1922 to the late William and Edna Naus of Kenton. She graduated from

grandchildren; Elaine (Todd) Parshall and children Brandt and Delaney, Jackson; Mike (Audra) Carr and

Mary played basketball in school and closely followed OSU basketball and football throughout her life.
She sang in the choir at Epworth United Methodist Church in Kenton and taught Sunday School there for
many years. She worked for over 30 years at Westinghouse in Bellefontaine, OH.
Following her husband’s death, Mary was completely mobile at Arbor Woods for several years before a
