Mary was born on October 20, 1932, to Jacob Pleasant Cagle and Edna Zora (McBee) Cagle in Polk County, Arkansas. She loved flowers, especially roses, gardening, cooking, canning, spending time with her beloved little dogs and her family. She had a big heart for animals, often nursing orphaned fawns, bunnies, goats, and calves to health, really any animal that needed it. She was known affectionately by her great grandchildren as GG. She made the best Plum jelly, Peach cobbler & Cherry Yum Yum. Pink was her favorite color. She was as dainty as a flower and as tough as nails all at the same time.
