Mary E. Wilkin, 91, passed away on July 12, 2019. She was born on August 19, 1927 the daughter of Floyd & Hazel Rose. Mary loved her family, her church families and any child she happened to meet. She was a woman of great faith and was a lifelong member of Grants Hill Presbyterian Church and most recently Faith United Methodist Church. In her younger years she enjoyed camping, traveling and fishing with George and good friends. Mary was proud of her Scottish heritage and loved working in the kitchen at church, in the garden with her sister and side by side with George on whatever project that was at hand. She made her house a home for family and friends and was well known for her famous jello salads. Mary always had a smile on her face and is sure to have one now.
