She was preceded in death by her brothers, Alex "Sonny", Charles, William and George and her sister Catherine (Timney) Beeman. She was also preceded in death by her husband, William Kepner, Sr. and step-son William Kepner, Jr.

She is survived by her son, Michael Bowling; daughter-in-law, Judi Bowling and her daughter, Ayla Stevens.

She kept up with current events and politics and enjoyed asking questions and discussing issues with family and friends. She will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews

Mary's family appreciates the expert care, kindness and compassion given provided by her caretakers. Their loving hearts allowed her to live in the comfort of her home and spend her final days on her own terms. Each and every caretaker went above and beyond what was expected of them, especially Margie who cared for Mary from the beginning.

The family also thanks WMHS Hospice and the Georges Creek Ambulance Service.
