Obituary for MARY J. BOURNE

Mary Frances Johnson Bourne affectionately known to all as "Granny" was born to the late Sarah Elizabeth Egins and Hezzie Johnson on November 21, 1925. In later years Granny was raised by John Tyler.

Granny received her education in Calvert County Public Schools. One of her greatest accomplishments was attending Calvert Adult Education where she proudly received her Diploma in 1985. She worked as a housekeeper/babysitter for many families until she retired. Then you found her helping to take care of her grandchildren, great & great-great grands.

Granny developed a strong following of God from a young age where she attended Mt. Olive United Methodist church. She was one of the first Sunday school teachers who was loved and admired by many students, who in their adult years often stopped her to share cherished memories. She was one of the last surviving members of the Old Calvary Chorus. She was a very active member of the church holding many positions on committees such as Building Committee, Church Treasurer, Administrative Counsel, United Methodist Women, senior choir member and a delegate for the Baltimore Washington Conference. Mary attended Mt. Olive until her health failed but continued to be a faithful supporter. You could often hear her humming or singing her favorite hymns throughout the day.

Anyone who knew Granny knew she would nicely say what was on her mind but had a gentle caring spirit. She always took the time to give a caring word of advice or encouragement, sending cards or writing letters. One of her biggest joys was her 3 year old great-great granddaughter Cherish who spent every day with her and became her "assistant care giver".

Mary was united in marriage to Turner Mackall. From that union there were 4 children, William, Robert, Calvin and Carolyn. In 1994 Mary married her sweetheart Earle A. Bourne. On December 7, 2013 after a lengthy illness God called unto her and she answered gently closing her eyes at home where she was lovingly cared for by her daughter, son-in-law, family friend Ruth Long and grandkids. Granny was preceded in death by her husband Earle; son, Robert K. Mackall, Sr.; sisters, Indiana Mason and Dorothy Dixon; brothers, Melvin, Simmon, Carlton Tyler and one great-great grand La'Jayden Black.

Granny leaves to honor her memory: her devoted daughter, Carolyn Blake and husband Leroy; sons, William Mackall, Sr. and wife Phyllis, Calvin Mackall; daughter-in-law, Joan Mackall; brothers, Hezzie Johnson and William Harris; sisters, Elnore Hicks, Catherine Tyler-King, Violette Brooks, Rose Byrd, Lillie, Shirley, Lucille and Alice Johnson, 21 grandchildren, 25 great-grands and 9 great-great grands and adopted granddaughter, Eunice Athey; family friends, Mary Hawkins, Ruth Reynolds, Ruth Long, Philis Hurley, Mark & Renee Bright, Betsy Athey, Veronica Thorne and Family, Russell Costley and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
