May 18, 1936 - March 7, 2022
PEARSON, Mary Mildred, age 85, of Miamisburg and formerly of West Union and Franklin, passed away Monday, March 7, 2022. Mary graduated from Springboro High School, class of ’55. She was a longstanding and faithful member of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Waynesville. Easygoing, kind, and loving, Mary had a strong faith in God and greatly enjoyed reading her Bible. She taught Sunday school for many years, educating as many as 33 students at one time, who she affectionately called “her girls.” Her other hobbies included oil and acrylic painting, crocheting, and gardening. Gardening with her late husband Bob was a big part of her life, which ultimately involved the entire family. Sitting on the porch stringing and breaking half-runner green beans became one of the fondest memories she and the family had together. In addition, the effort she placed in to canning the garden vegetables also became memorable. It became a tradition for Mary to prepare green beans flavored with pork chops at least three times per week. In fact, Mary ate green beans almost every day. She appreciated nature and the many health benefits flowers and herbs provided. She took pride in creating many flavorful treats from her flowers and herbs, including red clover jelly and dandelion tea. She always tried to teach an appreciation of nature, including all the colorful backyard birds, to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren became her pride and joy, especially while they were little. She made ornaments with the youngest generation during the Christmas season and preferred to show off their crafts on her tree versus manufactured pieces. She was preceded in death by her first husband, Joe K. Rogers, in 1968; spouse, Bob Pearson in 2001; one son, Gary Pearson; granddaughter, Tonya Rogers; grandson, Charlie Pearson; her parents, Kirgie and Lottie Marshall; and one brother, Russell Marshall. She is survived by five children, Joel Rogers, Donnie (Marna) Rogers, Keith Rogers (Trina), Cathy (Tim) Noble, and Davey (Trina) Pearson; 12 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and four sisters, Betty Abner, Anna (Otis) Turner, Cathrine Vaughn, and Jeanette Hurd. The family will receive friends 5 - 8 PM Friday, March 11 at Full Gospel Tabernacle in Waynesville. A funeral service will follow the next day, Saturday, at 11 AM at the church. Rev. Tim Noble will be officiating the services. Burial will be in Highland Memorial Gardens in Miamisburg. Stubbs-Conner Funeral Home in Waynesville is serving the family. If desired, contributions may be made to Hospice of Middletown and the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Waynesville. Condolences at www.stubbsconner.com.
