Obituary for Mary Frances Cowley

Mary "Frances" Cowley was born on July 26, 1924 in Cairo, Illinois to Walter and Maxie Neighbors Means. She moved to Oklahoma at the age of 4. She graduated from Ocina High School as Valedictorian in 1943.

She worked in a small-town cafe, when a good-looking young man ordered a cup of coffee. She refilled his cup several times and finally he asked her, "May I take you home?" Thus began a courtship which lead to marriage on August 10, 1943 and lasted for 68 years.

They moved to Earth, Texas in 1949, then in 1965 to Hereford, Texas. She was a farmer's wife and substitute teacher for 19 1/2 years. Her main role in life was a devoted wife, mama, and grandma. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband "Buddy", son Charles, and daughter Carolyn. Survived by one son, Denis Cowley and wife Doris from South Padre Island, Texas, 7 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and one son-in-law. She was a member of the First Baptist Church. She loved music, poetry, singing, and all of us.

Favorite Bible verse: John 14 - "Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God believe also in me."

PS: For those of you that knew my mother, she wrote her own Obituary to make sure no survivor might mess it up.
