Mary enjoyed life and she loved her family. She had a special love for her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She was a very classy lady but not afraid of hard work.

They were married and were blessed with 2 children before moving to Stilwell, OK in 1949. They were later blessed with 2 additional children and the purchase of their farm in Tahlequah, OK. Mary worked very hard beside her husband on the family farm. She worked as a nurses aide and retired from Tahlequah City Hospital and later worked 13 years as a door greeter at Wal-Mart and retired at 89. She enjoyed playing cards, dice and really enjoyed going to the casino. Mary also loved to bake, especially for Feed My Sheep. Mary touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents; the children's father; her son Joseph Glen Blakemore; her daughter Joy Marie Wiseley; 3 sisters and 1 brother.
