Mary (Stogdill) Long, 76, Freetown

Mary A. (Stogdill) Long, 76, passed away Thursday morning, Nov. 15, 2012, at Indiana University Hospital Morgan in Martinsville. She was a resident of Freetown. 

Mary was born Nov. 12, 1936, in Bedford to Otto Levi and Beulah Edna (Wootton) Stogdill. She worked most of her life as an assembly worker for Harmon Becker in Martinsville and PTS Electronics and RCA, both of Bloomington. Mary also worked as a cook for Indiana University in Bloomington.

She was devoted to her family and her church family. Mary was known as a wonderful person who was always there for someone in need. Mary was a member of Country Gospel Music Church in Gnaw Bone and cherished spending time with her grandson, Daniel, and his family. She loved to cook and bake and was famous for her blackberry cobbler. Mary enjoyed working in her yard, mowing and cleaning her home.

She will be greatly missed by her two daughters, Janet A. Long of Freetown and Sally R. Richardson of Bloomington; grandchildren, Daniel L. (LaNora) Richardson of Columbus, Brian E. Richardson of Madisonville, Ky., and Jama Pierce of Spencer; great-grandchildren Jonathon Grubb of Terre Haute, Samantha Grubb of Bloomington, and Jeff and Jordan Pierce, both of Spencer; and great-great-grandchildren, Nikolai, Eva and Jaxson Russell. She will be remembered by her many siblings, Betty Reynolds of Greenfield, Lou Ella Stogdill and Sarah Mullis, both of Bloomington, Lloyd Stogdill of Freetown, James “Bud” Stogdill of Nineveh, Joseph Stogdill of Greenwood and Samuel Stogdill of Franklin.

Mary was preceded in death by a son-in-law, James R. Richardson; one great-great-grandson, Jeremy Dean Richardson; sisters, Norma Nash and Thelma Strunk; and brothers, Warren, William, David, Walter and Charles Stogdill.

The Rev. Jim Ackerman will conduct a funeral service at noon Monday, Nov. 19 at Country Gospel Music Church, 5181 State Road 46 East in Gnaw Bone. Visitation for family and friends will be from 10 a.m. until service time Monday at the church. Burial will be in Houston Cemetery in Jackson County.       

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center in Morgantown.

Mary’s family strongly suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be sent in honor of her to Alzheimer’s Disease South Central Chapter, P.O. Box 547, Columbus, IN 47202.
