Mary Lee Farho, age 60, passed away peacefully December 24, 2019 at the home of her daughter, Alyssa Mabry, in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL following a lengthy illness which finally proved too much to overcome. Mary was born October 14, 1959 in Marshfield, WI to Charles and Paula "Polly" Farho. She was preceded in death by her mother, Polly, her paternal grandparents, George and Marjorie Farho; maternal grandparents, Martin and Elinore Jones; uncle, Michael Jones; and uncle and aunt, Jim and Carmen Knoble.
Mary was the loving mother of Alyssa Fay (Jason) Mabry of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL; Lauren Leigh Hancock of Arnold, MO; and Sarah Katherine (Jared) Caruso of Foley, MO. Also surviving are her precious grandchildren whom she absolutely adored. They are Logan Hampton of Arnold, MO, Cameron and Rylan Mabry of Ponte Vedra Beach, and Chace, June, and Charlie Caruso of Foley, MO.
She is also survived by her father, Charles (Chuck) and his wife, Joyce Farho of Tucson, AZ; her brothers Tom (Beth) of Plainwell, MI and Steve (Shannon) of Baton Rouge, LA along with sister, Jenny (David) Rees of Tucson. In addition, surviving are Joyce's children, Lori (Charlie) Wajszczuk and Tod (Renee) Langeland, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Mary was a graduate of Plainwell High School and attended Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University. She spent the majority of her working career in medical products sales and physician recruiting, living in the Kalamazoo, MI area until a job transfer necessitated a move to the St. Louis area. She lived there for several years, ultimately joining her oldest daughter and her family in the Jacksonville Beach, FL area where she lived until she passed.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized, but there will be a memorial service for her at First Presbyterian Church of Richland, MI, with interment in the church Memorial Garden, likely in the Spring of 2020. Florida arrangements were handled by Quinn-Shalz Family Funeral Home while Langeland Family Funeral Homes are handling the Michigan arrangements.
