As a newspaper employee, she loved to sell advertising and write articles. As a part owner of a dairy bottling company, she loved to drive the truck and deliver the milk. As the wife of a fundraiser, she loved to create fund raising material. As an older member of her church, she loved to work on projects and events. As an OATS bus rider, she loved to help raise money. Mary Liz was both smart and optimistic. She would encourage her friends and family to stretch and follow their dreams. For her no dream was beyond reason if you worked hard enough at it. When things didn’t work out quite to plan, she would fall back on the family view that “it’s good experience for later.” In later life she did wonder from time to time if she would “ever be able to use all this experience.” Mary Liz was fiercely competitive. She probably learned to be competitive while playing cards with her grandmother as a child. Her grandmother was a Cady and related to the women’s rights advocate, Elizabeth Cady Stanton. When told of her decision to fight her advanced cancer, an old friend and fellow bridge player smiled, shook her head, and said, “That’s just like Mary Liz to bid a slam with only one trump.” Nobody would have been surprised if she had won. For three generations the family home on Church Street, less than a block from where Mary Liz was born, has rung with music, laughter, and happy times and has been a source of strength in the not so happy times. Mary Liz loved living there and celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. She loved being the hostess for her bridge club and Modern Seekers. She loved any excuse to set the tables, make things glamorous, and bring together a group of people for a good time. Mary Liz will be missed. She would probably encourage you to make a new friend, to invite your friends over for a party, to be optimistic and follow your dreams, and to do the best job you can with the cards you are dealt. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m., Friday, May 30, 2003, in Adams Funeral Home, Ozark, with Rev. Karla Endicott officiating. Burial will follow in Weaver Cemetery. Visitation will be 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, in the funeral home. The family would encourage memorial gifts be made in her name to the Ozark Area Transportation Service c/o Mildred Hill, P.0.
