Mary was born in Blackwell, OK; raised in Missouri; married and moved to Enfield, CT; lived in Bristol, CT where she assisted in taking care of her grandchildren; her final days were with her loving family in Alton, IL.

Mary was a very devote Christian and a member of the Bible Standard Ministry. Her favorite pastimes included listening to sermons, traveling to Church Conventions, spending time with her family and extended families. Many knew her by “Fearless Fosdick” and “Ma-Ma Mary”.

She will be missed by many, however, she is reunited with loved ones that have gone before. There is no doubt, that she is being held in Our Father’s loving arms. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to “The Bible Standard Ministry” 1156 St. Matthews Rd. Chester Springs, PA 19425-2700.
