Mary was a godly woman who loved the Lord and her family, and set an example for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren that will lead them all their lives.

Mary was born in Wayne County on May 13, 1921, to the late Will Anderson and Annie Myrtle Corbett Anderson. She was married to the late Gurney Alvin Laws. Mary was a caring, loving wife, mother and grandparent whose primary goal was the happiness and security of her family. She was an active member of Falling Creek United Methodist Church and was also involved in their United Methodist Women. Mary also supported her husband in many of his business, civic and charitable activities.
