Mary Louise Wofford was born to the union the late Ruby Ree Wofford and Joe Henry Pryor, on August 25, 1959 in Grenada, Mississippi. She earned her eternal transition on November 6, 2020.
Mary came to Middletown, Ohio, in 1976, and went to Middletown High School. She worked various jobs in healthcare, food service and some factory work. She was known for her no-nonsense ways, always cool and calm, but everyone who knows her, knew she was a negative zero tolerance for nonsense. Mommy was truly a warrior. She had a razor-sharp tongue, a keen sense of integrity and could read a person in one encounter. Some of her favorite sayings were: “I mean seriously”, “Now don’t get silly on me” and “Like I said.”
Although she barred none, her house was a home to many and was the drop off spot. She assisted in raising her siblings, as well as other family members. If there was a need, she was there to help. She enjoyed her niece, nephews and helping out with her grandchildren, as well as watching the news, thrift stores, decorating her home, drinking her beer or Dr. Pepper with her favorite Aunt Louise whom she was very close to. Anybody who knew them two, knew to pack a lunch because they could talk for hours.
She went home to glory seven years after being diagnosed with early onset dementia.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ruby Ree Wofford and Joe Henry Pryor; her close and special aunt, Louise Conley; very special niece, Ashley Russell; and great-grand-daughter, Kevanah Howard.
She leaves to cherish her legacy: three daughters, Pepper Wofford, Iris Morgan and Cassandra Morgan (Rodney); grandsons, Kreshawn Forest, Kyriece Forest, Tysun Henderson and Ashton Morgan; granddaughters, Seana Lee Campbell, John’nae Strickland, Lashay Strickland, Keziah Roberts and Miriah Strickland; great-grand-daughter, Amya and great-grandsons, Kymauri Keeynan and August Forest, all of Middletown, Ohio; siblings, Carolyn Houston of Grenada, Mississippi, Alesia Bingham, Sheila Bingham, Bobby Wofford (Tracy) and AC Bingham, all of Middletown, Ohio; and a host of other relatives and friends.
