Mary Elizabeth Reeves July 18th , 1930 to August 14 th , 2017
Our mother, grandmother and great grandmother was born to James and Pearl Beavers on July
19 th , 1930 in Tulsa Oklahoma.
Mother married our father Bobby Ray Reeves from Gilbert Arkansas on October 6th 1950 who preceded her to Heaven in 2004.
Mary was a graduate from Will Rogers High School in 1948. She retired on the early 90s as a
secretary for the Tulsa Public School System in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was President of the Genealogy
Society of Tulsa in the late 90s. Mary was such a gifted woman, she painted, restored furniture, and the beautiful quilts she made can be seen as far away as Toowoomba Queensland South Australia.
Mary was an active member of the UMA, United Methodist Women until her illness refrained
her from continuing, but the friends she made are everlasting.
Our family has been truly blessed to have her as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt,
grandmother and great grandmother and of course a friend.
Mary is survived by her sister Pat Nye of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Daughters Libby Unnerstall and her
husband Larry of Edmond Oklahoma, Paula Tomasik and her husband Bill Tomasik of Tahlequah
Oklahoma, Grandchildren Sarah Williams and her husband Zack and their children Hazel and Harvey ,
Justin Nolan and his wife Janina and their son Kailob Nolan, Sam Nolan and his daughter Olivia Nolan,
Kimberly and Johnny Guerreo of California, Heather and Clay Collins and their son Chase, and Jennifer Tomasik and her children Nathalie, Uriah and Ariana and many loved nieces and nephews.
She will truly be missed but is with our Daddy and her Lord Jesus.

We as her loving family thank everyone for your prayers and help and hope you will celebrate
Mothers new adventure eternally.
Oh and we really hope Daddy had Chloe all polished and shinned up for Mother
when she arrived!!!! Online condolences may be left at tahlequahfuneral.com. Final arrangements under the care of Green Country Funeral Home.
