Obituary for Mary Marie Head

Mary Marie Head, age 85, of Aurora, Missouri, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, September 8, 2019, at the Aurora Nursing Center. She was born September 21, 1933, at home in Shell Knob, Missouri, the daughter of Samuel and Mary (Anderson) Mahurin.

Marie and her husband, Jearl, were residents of Aurora for 50 plus years and raised two sons, Rick and Billy. Marie worked at Mom’s Café (down on the square) and Walmart. She was known for her quick wit, her humor, her smile and her love for crosswords puzzles and word searches. She blessed her family and friends with her musical talents and her beautiful crocheted gifts. Treasured and joyous moments were when she and many other family members would bring our guitars, banjos, fiddles and mandolins to sing and play for hours at family gatherings or at church.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Mary Mahurin, stepdad, Woodrow Mahurin, husband, Jearl Head, son, Billy Head, grandson, Randy Head, daughter-in-law, Geneva Head, as well as brothers, Carl Mahurin, Bill (Bus) Mahurin, Charlie Mahurin, Ronald Mahurin and sisters, Cynthia (Sis) Sharp and Eula (Mathews) Brewer.

Marie is survived by her son, Rick Head and daughter-in-law, Gloria, of Springfield, Missouri; sisters, Hazel Coker and brother-in-law, James of Aurora and Joyce Myers of Aurora; sister-in-law, Juanita Mahurin of Aurora; grandson, Leslie Head of Aurora; granddaughter, Stephany Brown of Aurora; great-grandsons, Devin Head of Strafford, Missouri, Leslie Head of Aurora, Tyler Brown of Branson, Missouri, Myles Buchta of Aurora; great-granddaughter, Madilynn Head of Aurora and many nieces and nephews. Marie will be dearly missed by all.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at the Crafton-Cantrell Funeral Home in Aurora. Burial will follow at the Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora. Visitation will be held from 6:00–7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, in the funeral home chapel.
