Mary was a retired registered nurse and worked for many years at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi, and at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb, Mississippi.

After retiring, Mary continued her nursing by taking care of her mother who lived to be 97.

Mary’s companion for 18 years was her beloved poodle, Buddy. If you knew Mary, then you most certainly knew Buddy and how much he meant to her.

Mary Anding Grace, born March 18, 1932, is preceded in death by her parents, and husband, Henry Grace.

Mary is survived by her special caregiver, Lora Youngblood, and special friends, Gary and Cheryl Myers.

We wish to express appreciation to the nurses and staff of Compassus Hospice Care.
