Mary Pearl Tuttle, 86, of Brookhaven, passed from this life June 5, 2022, at her residence. She was born in Bude, MS, Jan. 6, 1936. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She would often say her “grands” kept her going. Any time you would visit her home, you left with a bag of snacks. Mary loved a sale, especially garage sales. She never met a stranger and after you spent a few moments with her you loved her. She enjoyed planting a vegetable garden and sharing the rewards of her work. Mary is also a retired Certified Nursing Assistant. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.

She is preceded in death by her parents Thomas Eugene McCoy, Sr. and Pearl Elizabeth Souleret Smith; grandson, Michael Jackson; brother, Tommy McCoy; and sister, Margaret Seale.

God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be;

So he put his arms around you, And whispered, “Come to me”

With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away;

Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
