Mary was born November 13, 1922, in Louisville, KY to the late William Herschel Summers and the late Mary Elizabeth Galloway Summers.

Mary is survived by her daughters, Jenny Pillow Bush of Bowling Green, KY, and Janet Ruth Pillow of Mt. Dora, FL; her son, Jerry Pillow (Alice) of Bowling Green, KY; eight grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and fourteen great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a nephew and two special granddaughters, Sarah Elizabeth Bush and Mary Beth Driver.
Mary got saved at a young age and later joined the First Baptist Church in Bowling Green, KY. Mary was a huge lover of all animals, and her motto was, “They are God’s creatures and deserve to be fed.” She had several pets and loved feeding all the wild critters outside. Her daddy gave her the nickname “Mutt” because every time she went out to play, she would come back with a stray dog. Mary retired from Fruit of the Loom on Church Street after 35 years. She loved watching Andy Griffith, Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Wheel of Fortune. Mary loved God and her family dearly.
Also, a very special thank you to Jackie Haswell for caring for grandma.
