Age 92, Shenandoah, Va.
Mary Eula Keyser Gregory, 92, of Shenandoah, Va., departed this life February 11, 2023 after a long illness. She was born on July 6, 1930.
She married Hoyt Andrew Gregory of North Carolina and had two children before separating. She later met Earl V. Cubbage with whom she shared her life until his death in 2012. She was employed by Sleepware, Comdial and Plants-a-Plenty.
Mary spent each day exactly as she wanted. She loved to garden and travel the Blue Ridge Parkway. She was a skilled quilter, enjoyed needlework, painting ceramics and making holiday ornaments. She weaved baskets and made rugs on her mother’s loom. Each year, she looked forward to butchering, making apple butter and listening to bluegrass music with family and friends. But most of all, she loved her family.
Mary is predeceased by parents Molder and Virgie Breeden Keyser, as well as beloved daughter, Patricia Turner.
She is survived by daughter, Carolyn Hardy (Kirk), who lovingly cared for her in her final years, as well as grandchildren, Rachael Crawford-Tash (Chris), Charles Turner (Crystal), Michael Turner (Amanda), Rodney Crawford (Jessica), Dustin Turner (Corey); 10 great-grandchildren; and a son-in-law, Hootie Turner.
The family will receive friends on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at the Shenandoah Assembly of God beginning at noon, followed by a funeral service at 1 p.m. Pastor Carter Dean will officiate. Interment will be at the Sam Comer Cemetery on Comertown Road.
Lindsey Kyger Funeral Home in Shenandoah is handling arrangements.
