September 11, 1938 - April 17, 2019
Mary J Goolsby, 80, of Independence, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, April 17, 2019, in Lee’s Summit, MO.
Visitation will be Friday, April 19, 2019, from 5:30-7p at Hidden Valley Funeral Home of Excelsior Springs. The funeral will be held at 10:30 am on Monday, April 22, 2019, at Hidden Valley Funeral Home of Excelsior Springs. Burial will follow the funeral at Crown Hill Cemetery.
Mary was born September 11, 1938, in Excelsior Springs, MO. She is the daughter of the late Jean and the late Lucy B (Jones) Marrant. She married Bob Hunter Goolsby on October 4, 1957 at Excelsior Springs, Missouri. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob Hunter Goolsby on February 4, 1997.
Mary loved her family, and enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren. She was a wise woman that loved to read. She enjoyed tending to her bird house and watching the birds; but the squirrels would make her mad by stealing the birdseed. Mary did embroidery and taught her children how to do it. She relaxed by doing coloring books. Mary also designed the bulletin board for church.
She is survived by three daughters: Mary Jean Jones, Susan (Steve) McCollum, and Debra Boone; one son: Doug Goolsby; fifteen grandchildren and many great-grandchildren; three sisters: Lucy, Alida, and Brenda Kay; and six brothers: Robert, Ricky, Henry, Dean, Gary and Billy.
In addition to her parents and husband, Mary was preceded in death by her sons: Robert K Goolsby, and Tony Goolsby; and her brothers, Justin Marrant, and George Marrant.
The family of Mary Goolsby would like to thank the staff members of The Village of Jackson Creek for their kindness and compassion during Mary’s stay.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation of time to a local nursing home.
