In Memory of
Mary Jane Choate
-

Our loving mother Mary, symbolized her dedication to Jehovah God by water baptism on January 9, 1995 in Russellville, Arkansas. Mary was very active in the ministry sharing good news with family, friends and anyone she met.  

Mary was a beautiful, soft spoken, warm, kind and very caring person. She was a dedicated mother who treasured her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and embraced every moment she could with them.  

In her earlier years, Mary was a secretary at the University of Arizona in Phoenix, Arizona. She spoke several languages including Spanish. Mary was a housewife and an excellent cook, who enjoyed preparing home cooked meals. Mary’s favorite dish was vegetable soup. She also had a sweet tooth and enjoyed her homemade blackberry pie.  

Mary had a big heart when it came to helping others. She always opened her home to people that were in need and always offered a helping hand and assisted as much as possible. Mary always kept herself busy, but she always made time to read her Bible daily.  

She enjoyed canning, gardening, fishing, singing, dancing, sewing, quilting, swimming and going to the gym to work out, even after the young age of 70.  

Her life was a living example of her favorite bible Verse: Ephesians 4:32 “But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you”. 

Mary had a bright cheerful personality and always laughed. She was always forgiving and she taught her children to love one another. Mary peacefully passed on Friday, April 29, 2022 at home in the loving arms of her family. She will be missed dearly.

To the woman who taught me how to be kind, forgiving, respectful, and humbled. Grandma, I am truly going to miss you. Everyone asks where did I get my kindness from, and of course I always say it’s what my grandmother instilled in me. I will cherish every single memory that I have of you, and it’s so many. You will forever be with me.
Love Renata ❤️

Mary, it has been a long ride. Yet you've endured till the end. You witnessed the world change greatly since 1919. Well done. You leave a lifetime of memories and children who will cherish your memory always. Rest easy baby.

We come humble yet boldly as we know how in this moment thanking the father for mary. For he is the Alpha and omega. The beginning and the end period. . . our Elohim.

We cry out to Jehovah-Shammah on today and ask that he will be right "there" with this family through every tear. Lord Stretch forth your mighty right hand and touch them in ways that only "I AM" can. Lead, guide, direct, and protect them. Be a lamp to their feet and a light to the path during this dark hour.

We further thank the father that not "ours" but "thine" will be done. Thank him that we are all passing through here on this earth, the land of the dying. On our way to the land of the living. In the name of the "DOOR". Amen. Amen. And Amen.

Mary, rest easy baby. May EL SHADDAI carry you through the door of eternity.
