January 31, 1925 - September 26, 2020
Mary Yvonne Leamer, of Terrell, passed away with family at her side on Sept. 26, 2020. Mary was born Jan. 31, 1925 in Trenton, Tx to Mark Franklin and Lena (Sanders) Sherrell. She was welcomed into Heaven not only by her Lord and Savior, but also her parents, her beloved husband, Frank Leamer, her cherished daughter, Pam Cowan and her five siblings. At an early age, Mary and her six siblings went to live at Buckner Orphans Home in Dallas where they grew up together. Having each other ensured that Mary grew up with a firm foundation in faith and love, examples that she continued to display to others throughout her life. After graduating high school, she entered into the workforce where her fun personality made her a favorite of her co-workers. She worked for over 24 years as a Purchasing Agent with Continental EMSCO until her retirement. Mary was very strong in her faith and this faith helped her during the loss of her husband, Frank, and her daughter, Pam. She had been a member of Hawkins Baptist Church and she was often found visiting other churches so that she could always learn more of how to serve God better each day. Mary spent time in the Word, reading her Bible, daily so that she could always be prepared to share with others the Good News and, not only did she talk of the Gospel, but she lived it in her daily life by being generous to others and kind to everyone she met. Mary was fun and her sense of humor was one of the first things that others noticed about her along with her love and devotion for her family. Her favorite times were spent gardening, playing golf and playing cards with family and friends and she looked at each day she spent with loved ones as a true blessing from the Lord. A beautiful woman inside and out, Mary will be greatly missed by the many who loved her so much. She is survived by her son, Brad Leamer and wife, Betty, of Terrell; grandchildren: Dylan Cowan and wife, Julie, of Bulverde, TX, Stefan Cowan and wife, Kristen, of Dripping Springs, TX, Jason Cowan and wife, Sarah, of Glenwood, CO, Lisa Cowan of Austin, Karen Cowan of Austin, Sarah Daniel and husband, Josh, of Bullard, TX and Lauren Johnson and husband, Zachariah, of Tyler; great grandchildren: Gavin Cowan, Haylee Roberts, Hannah Cowan, Lincoln Cowan and Ella Daniel; sister, Jay Campana as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Graveside service will be at 2:00pm, Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020 at Laurel Land Memorial Park in Dallas where Mary will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband. For those wishing, memorials may be made in Mary’s honor to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation at ww5.komen.org.
