Mary Hensley was of the Church of God faith. She attended the Totz Church of God and taught Sunday School for many years. She loved the Lord and reading her Bible. She enjoyed being around her grandchildren and flea marketing with her husband, Bruce after he retired. She enjoyed road trips with her daughters. She was a quilter and loved making quilts for all to enjoy. She loved all of her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was the best gravy and biscuit maker in this world-and she was.
