Mrs. Waugh was a printer with the West Virginia Glass Specialty Company of Weston. Upon it’s closure, Mary became a school cook with the Lewis County Board of Education. She worked at Copley School, Jane Lew Elementary and Robert L. Bland Middle School, where she retired. Mary was a graduate of Weston High School with the class of 1950 and attended and was a member of the McWhorter United Methodist Church where she sang alto in their choir for many years.
Her passions in life were but not limited to: her love for God and her family. Mary loved children in general but spoiling her grand and great grandkids were at the top of her list. Mary had a wonderful zest for life and was known to leave smiles and sunshine wherever she went. Cooking was always a special treat for her and no one left her house hungry.
A private family visitation will be held on Monday and a private graveside service at Lewis County Memorial Gardens will follow with Pastor David Riddle officiating. On-line condolences and life stories in memory of Mary may be expressed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hardman Family Funeral Home of Weston considers it and honor and privilege to serve the family of Mary Thomas Waugh.
