Obituary of Mary Flanagan

Mary Elizabeth Flanagan, born June 27, 1928, in Birmingham AL to Besse and Bernard Sigmier, passed away on April 11, 2019 in Houston, TX. 

Mary was preceded in death by her mother, Besse Sigmier and father Bernard Sigmier.  She is survived by her husband Stan Flanagan and daughters Kathy Spell, Beth Fruge, Ginger McKnight and Maureen Evans and her brother Bernie Sigmier. Mary is also survived by her 7 grandchildren, Cassidy Spell, Graham Spell, Robby Fruge, Amy Fruge, Allen McKnight, Troy McKnight and Megan Evans. She is also survived by her 3 great grandchildren,  Steven, Joseph, and Jaxon.

Mary was a stay at home mom for many years where her life revolved around her husband and daughters.  She volunteered for many activities such as Girl Scout leader, homeroom mom, field trip driver and carpool driver.  She spent many an hour in the car taking the girls to sports games and practices, music lessons, dance and drill team activities and after school jobs.  Once the girls were more independent, she took a job in the office of an orthopedic doctors group where she typed the correspondence and notes the doctors dictated to files, patients and insurance companies. In her retirement years, she volunteered at the St. Jerome school library.

A Rosary will be said at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at 11:00 a.m., on Monday, April 22 at St. Jerome’s Catholic Church, 8825 Kempwood Dr. in Houston, TX.

Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The family would like to thank Village on the Park, especially the memory care staff, and Bristol Hospice for the loving care and attention given to Mary during her illness.
