On Thursday morning, January 14, 2021, an angel was dispatched from heaven to transition another solider home, Mary Evans Rushing. Mary was born on January 28, 1949 to the late John and Cora Herring Evans. She attended Davidson County School System and graduated from Church Street School in 1967. After high school Mary worked for Thomasville Furniture Industries for over 25 years. She attended Union Baptist Church for many years, until her health declined.
On October 10, 1970, she was united in holy matrimony to Albert Leaon Rushing. Together they have been blissfully married for more than 50 years.
In her spare time Mary loved to shop, cook, and watch her favorite game shows. Her vibrant spirit and memories will always live on.
In addition to her parents, Mary was also proceeded in death by one brother, James “Lukie” Griffin.
Surviving to cherish precious memories are her husband, Albert L. Rushing of the home, one sister, Lola Lindsay of Thomasville, NC; one special niece Yvonne Prickett of Thomasville, NC; two best friends, Pearlie Henderson and Donna Allen and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
