Mary Tooke, 89, went home to be with the Lord on March 28, 2022. She was born on December 31st, 1932, to Buford J. and Mary Gladys Peacock in Arp, Tennessee.

Mary was strong in her faith; she loved the Lord above all. She was a prayer warrior and was incredibly active in her walk with the Lord. She was an avid reader, she read her Bible daily, as well as Christian Romance Novels.
