Mary Gresham, age 67, of Rolla passed away on Tuesday, January 03, 2023, at Select Specialty Hospital in Springfield.
She was born September 11, 1955, in Mt. Vernon, MO to the late Eugene and Freda (Evans) Skyles.
As a sign of her loving and caring nature she only completed the 8th grade because she had to stay home and take care of her grandmother.
She married Steve Gresham on February 15, 1974. He survives of their home.
Mary would go on to work as a dietary supervisor at Phelps Health where she was employed for over 18 years.
She enjoyed gardening, watching her hummingbirds, and most of all playing pinball on the 3 pinball machines she had at her home. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren.
In addition to her parents Mary was also preceded in death by a sister Phyllis Sands.
In addition to her husband Steve, those left to mourn Mary, are a daughter Tina (Chris) Long, a son Steve Gresham of Rolla, a brother Dennis Skyles of Rolla, grandchildren Alison, Dylan and Ethan Long all of Rolla as well as many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
