Mary Louise Burnett was born to Jessie Mae (Jones) Williams and Charles Eugene Williams November 11, 1956. She departed this life Friday, July 21, 2017, at 60 years of age.
Mary spent her life in Ardmore, attending Ardmore Schools and graduating from Ardmore High School in 1975. She was a longtime devout member of Corinth Baptist Church, sang with the choir and the Carter County Mass Choir.  Mary was never ashamed to express the goodness of God. Her places of employment before losing her vision were: Cook’s Laundry, Elmbrook Health Care, the Seven Day Adventist Hospital, and for several years as a prep cook at McDonald’s, where she was well known for her biscuits. Mary lived knowing that one day she would depart from this mortal life and “Walk Around Heaven all day.” Having prepared her soul for Paradise, she was comforted knowing that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, and soon “We Shall Behold Him face to face.”
Mary is preceded in death by her parents and grandparents. Her late grandmother, Louise Jones, known to the grandchildren as Poppa, was a great influence in her life.  
Mary is survived by two brothers, Ronald Charles Williams and his wife, Marguerite, of Irving, Texas, and Mark Crow, Dallas; four sisters and their husbands, Amelia and Herman Jackson, Kimberly and Darnell Wright, Tina Biggers, all of Ardmore, and Christine Crow, Del City; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, the Corinth Church Family, and many friends.
Services are entrusted to the care of Kirk Funeral Home. The family will receive friends at Kirk Funeral Chapel Friday evening from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.  At 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon, July 29, 2017, a celebration of her life will be conducted at her church home with Pastor Abraham Walton officiating. Her final resting place will follow in Ardmore’s Clearview Cemetery.
