Mary Pauline (Lannerd) Culy, Dec. 5, 1912 – Dec. 25, 2012.
Mary “Polly” Culy quietly slipped from us into our Lord's arms on Christmas morning. Having lived over 100 years she looked forward to her heavenly home.
Mary Pauline was preceded in death by her husband, Loyd Eugene Culy of Hagerstown, IN and a daughter Elaine (Culy) Kremer.
Those who are left behind rejoice in her life among us and shall miss her greatly. She leaves two daughters, Marilyn Joan Saarinen of Wytheville, VA and Wilma Jean Stone of Sheridan, IN. She also leaves an uncertain total count of 55 plus grand, great-grand and great-great gandchildren. And of course many relatives and friends.
Mary Pauline left a note requesting those who wish to remember her please consider a gift the the Zion's Lutheran Organ Restoration Fund, P.O. Box 6, Pershing, IN 47370 or to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 405 East Main St., Wytheville, VA 24382 or to a charity of your choice.
