Mrs. Mary Chiles, 83, of Clovis died Saturday, Nov. 29, 2003, at Plains Regional Medical Center in Clovis.
She was born in a small town in Kentucky on Sept. 28, 1921, to Albert and Rhea Morris. She married Albert Chiles on May 20, 1937, in Muleshoe.
There are many words that can be used to describe Mary, a family member said: loving, caring, unselfish, courageous, dependable, respectable and many more.
She was the ultimate caregiver to many.
She will be missed in a way that only the people who knew her would understand.
She loved to dance, play her organ, play dominoes with just about anyone and play pool. She was a longtime member of the Eagles and always kept active.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many in her lifetime, the family member said.
She loved life, and loved making people happy, so much so that she always put others in front of herself.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Nan Walker of Washington; and her husband of 62 years.
Survivors include a sister, Jane Burchette of Clovis; three children, Mary Case and Rose Shropshire, both of Clovis, and Dewey Chiles of Longmont, Colo.; three grandchildren, Rhonda Hutton, Ronnie Hutton and Lori Nolan, all of Amarillo; and four great-grandchildren, Renae Phillips, Ryan Hutton, Isiah Nolan and Jacob Nolan, all of Amarillo.
The Rev. Joel Horne will officiate the service.
Burial will be in Melrose Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the direction of Steed-Todd Funeral Home.
