Obituary from Brownwville Herald:

Mary Gann Farrar April 09, 2009

On April 6, 2009 one of God's most dedicated servants went home. Mary Jane Gann Farrar, 94, our precious Mother suffered a massive stroke and left us to join the love of her life husband Dee Farrar, son Billy Wayne Farrar, grandchildren Brandi Nicholas and Stacey Cox and other family members.

Mother spent her life loving and taking care of her family and doing Her Lord's work. She was one of the founding members of Portway Baptist Church in Brownsville. She taught Sunday School for over 50 years touching the hearts of many of Brownsville's young children. She served her community by working and helping care for folks that came to the Portway Baptist Food Bank. Twice a week she would go to nursing homes and sing to them, witnessing to them and telling them of Gods love for them. She will be dearly missed by all.

Left behind to cherish and celebrate her life are 8 children. Don (Ellen, deceased) (Ann) Farrar, Bob (Betty, deceased) Farrar, Jayne (Gene) Cox, Larry (Ofi) Farrar, Sandra (George, deceased) Nicholas.

Also celebrating her memory are 33 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren, and 4 great great grandchildren.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate with us for viewing services on Friday, 1-7 pm April 10 at Henry Thomae Funeral Home, 701 N Bowie, San Benito. Graveside services will be held 10 am Saturday, April 11 at Mont Meta Cemetery, San Benito. Memorial services 1 pm, April 11, Portway Baptist Church, 2000 N. Minnesota Ave, Brownsville.
