Mary Alice Crocker
BLACKSHEAR — Mary Alice (Wyatt) Crocker, 80, passed away Saturday (Oct. 7, 2017) after an extended illness at her home surrounded by her loving family.
The Harlan, Ky., native lived the last 35 years of her life in Pierce County.
She was married on May 16, 1953 to the love of her life, David Earl Crocker. Together they raised six children in a loving Christian home and were married for more than 47 years until his death.
Her family remembers her best as a “mama bear.” She always put her family first in everything. To say she was “devoted and loving” are not strong enough words for the dedication she gave her family. Being a mother of six, she had precious little free time, but when she could she loved to sew and make various arts and crafts.
As a family, they loved camping and fishing together. She will leave a void in the fabric of this family that can never be filled; she will be missed by all.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Dan and Stella Wyatt, her husband of 47 years, David E. Crocker, a beloved toy-poodle, Molly, two brothers and three sisters.
Left to cherish precious memories are her five sons, David W Crocker, of Homerville, Richard (Mary) Crocker, Timothy Crocker, all of Blackshear, Gregory (Donna) Crocker and Stephen (Cindy) Crocker, of Smyrna; one daughter, Mary Catherine (Dan) Edenfield, of Homerville; two brothers, Ray Wyatt, of Upland, Ind., and William A Wyatt, of Garden Grove, Calif.; sister-in-law, Sandra (Earl Talmadge) Kicklighter, of Jesup; 10 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews, and countless people she has had a positive impact on.
Visitation was scheduled for today at 10 a.m. at Hoboken Baptist Church and will end at funeral hour.
The funeral will follow the visitation beginning at 12 p.m. today at Hoboken Baptist Church with the Rev. Tim Rowell officiating.
Burial will be at 4 p.m. today at Glennville City Cemetery in Glennville.
In lieu of flowers the family respectfully requests memorials be made to the Hoboken Baptist Church Building Fund, 4714 West Main St., Hoboken, Ga. 31542.
Glennville Funeral Home is serving the Crocker family.
