Mrs. Thomas was born on February 10, 1935. A long-time resident of Texarkana, Mary was married to Charles “Sweet Man” Thomas for 58 years until his death in 2011.

Mary “Sister” is what she was called by relatives and friends, was a faithful member of Bethel United Methodist Church in Queen City, TX. She loved the Lord, and would go out of her way to pick up her grandchildren to make sure they went to church. Mary was an avid Bingo player, and also loved to visit the casinos with her daughter.
