Obituary For

Mary Worthey

10/07/1946 - 01/04/2018

Mary Elizabeth Worthey, 71, returned to her heavenly home on January 4, 2018. Her devotion to her loved ones and her firm belief in God was at the forefront of all she did. 


Mary was born in Port Arthur, Texas on October 7, 1946. She spent her working years in food service at  Luby's Cafeteria, Golden Corral, a PCA, and Wal-Mart as a cashier. She was a part of the family at Amazing Grace Community Church in Caney KS for the past 8+ years. She was a grandmother, mother, prayer warrior, and friend to many. She made a great impact as a Deaconess in the ministry at AGCC in the connection ministry, prayer ministry and in the kitchen always serving others. Her time living in Bartlesville was one of the happiest of her life where she found community and family.


She is survived by her Foster Daughter, Tina Woodall of Claremont NH, Aunt Peggy Hilburn of Tyler, TX, Uncle E C (Sonny) Glidden of Buna, TX,  BFF's Bobbie & DeWayne VanAtta of Bartlesville, OK; and her church family at AGCC Caney, Kansas.


She was preceded in death by her son, Robert Dewayne Ford; mother, Hilda Marie Glidden; and father, James Werner. Her love for her son, Dewayne was unmatched.


Mary's favorite silent prayer was that she would bring a smile to her Savior's face. Now she gets to smile at Him face to face. Her favorite song was, "When He was on the Cross, I was on His Mind". 


A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, January 21st at Amazing Grace Community Church in Caney, KS. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Walker-Brown Funeral Home.

    Mary my dearest friend and sister in Christ, you have been with me through so many happy times in my life like the birth of most of my grand children. You were with me during the lowest times in my life, when my brother Phil dies, and when my sweet mother passed just last year. I don't know how I will go on with out you, but I know that our Lord and Savior Jesus will make a way for me. I would not bring you back to this world of turmoil if I could because I know that you are in a home prepared specially for you by the loving hands of Jesus as he promised he was going to do. I home that when you sit at the banquet table you will find a big mug of diet root beer waiting for you. Rest in Peace sister you have fought a good fight and run a good race, rejoice in your rewards.
