Mary Lee Bolding, 75, of Dunlap, Tennessee passed away on January 2nd at home surrounded by her family.
Mary was born and raised in Cullman, Alabama. She lived much of her adult life in Huntsville, Alabama. In her younger years she enjoyed managing a laundry mat, getting to know the bands that played at Von Braun Center, and being a regular winner of radio contests. She loved tending to her flowers, watching birds, reading novels and she never missed Days of Our Lives.
Her favorite things were her animals, coffee, Pepsi and her housecoat, that had to have a pocket. She spoiled and cared for all of her grandchildren and always showed off pictures of her great-grandchildren. She always fought hard and surprised many doctors at the battles she overcame. She lost her final battle to COPD and lung cancer. Her final resting place will be in Pine Grove Cemetery in Jasper, Tennessee.
