At 10:25 Monday evening on January 6th, 2016, Mary heard her Master say, “Well done thy good and faithful servant. She crossed the finish line of this life and transitioned from earthly labor to her heavenly reward and was greeted by her parents Joseph and Georgia Hendricks, her loving husband Tommy J, her two children Thomas Jr. and Linda. Her two siblings JoAnn Small and Robert Moore.
