October 28, 1941 — October 15, 2020

Mary C. Stokes

God in his infinite wisdom, looked down on October 15, 2020, and took Mary C. Stokes to her eternal rest.

She was born October 28, 1941 to the late mother, Earline McCurdy and late Lee McCurdy, and stepdad George Berry. She was also preceded in death by her sister Joanne Martin, brother in law, Charles Bradley and sister in law Carmen Berry.

She was a devoted mother, sister, aunt, granny and more. Cherishing her memories for years to come are one daughter, Sharon R. Patrick; three sons, Shelvy (Sheila) Norwood Jr., Thomas (Melody) Norwood, and Richard (Shirley) Norwood;  brother, Willie George (Jayme-Moore) Berry; Sister, Hattie Berry-Bradley; brother in law Henry Martin; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, and special friends.

She touched many lives with the love she had for Jesus Christ and shared it with many for she was not ashamed of the gospel of whom she believed in.
