There are no tears in heaven, nor grief of any kind; I leave this final teardrop, to those I left behind. Though absent from the body, I’m present with the lord; the joy of my salvation, is now my full reward.
Mary joined her heavenly family on October 24, 2021, surrounded by her loved ones. Mary married her sweetheart Lorin Max Pitcher in 1988. Mary was a fun-loving spirit with a great sense of humor. She enjoyed riding motorcycles, fishing, playing Texas hold-em tournaments and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband of 33 years Lorin Max Pitcher; sister Wilma Spradling; daughter Jennie Kinder; and son Todd Behunin, grandchildren Kifanie Fichalos (Nic), Ryanne Riet (Destini), Victoria Tlaxcala (Sal), Trini Bailey (Mike), Dale Bailey (Austin); great-grandchildren Trevian Hill, Tiarie Ford, Dominic Fichalos, Damian Fichalos, Dadrien Fichalos, Lucia Tlaxcala, Mark Riet, Alexander Riet, Janiece Bailey and Jamorris Bailey; niece Dawn Gray; nephews Derek Gray and Brian Snow; great-niece Amanda Snow; and great-nephew Gaige Snow.
