Mary Jane lived an amazing life, a life marked by service, servant leadership, and a secure relationship with God. As the first female Deacon of First Baptist Shellman and a long time Sunday school teacher, she was a soldier in her ministry of God's word. Her morning texts of inspiration reached many people and they will be greatly missed.
