Mary Virginia (Furgerson) Boswell

May 15, 1932 ~ May 12, 2022 (age 89)


Mary Boswell, 89, of Bend passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2022. 

Mary V. Boswell was born in Milan Tennessee, on May 15, 1932, to Tom and Mary Furgerson.  She gave her life to the Lord and was baptized when she was 15 years old.  The family moved to Dorena, Missouri shortly after her birth.  Mary married J.T. Boswell in 1940.  J.T. was 23 and Mary was 16.  They then moved to Seneca, Oregon where J.T. worked for E. Hines.  They were married for almost 40 years when J.T. passed away in the VA Hospital in 1988.  Mary remarried several years later to Bill Sexton.  After 9 years Bill passed away.

Mary has lived in Awbrey Place for more than 5 years and several of the staff have commented how they loved her because she was sweet but feisty.

A few words that describe Mary are: stubborn, loving, caring, quilter, backer, donuts, and biscuits/gravy.

“Mom, you are now in heaven, rejoicing with daddy, grandma, aunt Vada, Bill, and many others.  You have a new body & mind.  You are probably fixing biscuits and gravy.  This time they will be perfect and delicious.  We love you, mom, rest in peace. Until we meet again, hopefully soon.
