Mary Elizabeth Thurston, age 64, lost her battle with cancer on October 11, 2022.
Born on July 17, 1958 to Gerald and Jacqueline (Bengtson) Thurston, Mary graduated from Cass Midway High School in 1976. When she began working at the Internal Revenue Service, it became her lifetime career for over 38 years before her retirement. Little did she know the multitude of friends she would meet and the travels she would have. Mary loved watching the KC Royals and Chiefs, enjoyed spending time with her family and being the best Nana.
She is preceded in death by her mother, Jacqueline and brother Bill. Mary leaves behind her father, Gerald and siblings John (Pam), Allen (Michel), Joe (Wendy), Patricia (Bob), Vicki, Paul (Dana), Robert (Lisa), Ann (Virginia), and many nieces and nephews. She was godmother and Nana to many who will miss her.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, October 22, 2022 at Meyers Northland Chapel in Parkville, MO. A Committal Service will immediately follow at Walnut Grove Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to NorthCare Hospice. Memories of Mary and condolences to the family may be shared at meyersfuneralchapel.com.
