Mary L. Bryant
Ms. Mary L. Bryant, age 51, of New Castle, DE, formerly of Roanoke, VA, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 15, 2011.
Mary was born in Baltimore, MD, on December 13, 1959. She was employed for 17 years as an account representative with Applied Industrial Technologies in New Castle and later accepted a position as an adminstrative assistant with W.L. Gore in Elkton, MD, where she worked for 10 years.
She enjoyed a variety of interesting hobbies throughout her life including photography, music, cooking, baking, and dancing. She delighted in the outdoors and especially looked forward to time spent near the ocean. She also enjoyed the holiday season each year, taking great pleasure in preparations for Christmas.
A truly compassionate and giving person, Marys greatest enjoyment came from caring for others and encouraging them to find happiness and peace in their lives. She gently shared her love of the Lord with all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her absolute trust in the perfect wisdom of His will made her a wonderful role model for those seeking a more spirtual life.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Bain. She is survived by her daughter, Lori J. Bryant of New Castle; and her brother, Marvin McLawhorn of Largo, FL.
A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, at Cornerstone United Methodist Church, 3135 Summit Bridge Road, Bear, where visitation will begin at 9 am. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle.
