Mary Francis Jones Mooneyham

Mary Francis Jones Mooneyham, 89, of Murray, Kentucky, died Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2021, at Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House in Murray.

Originally from Mayfield, Kentucky, she was most recently a resident at Brookdale Assisted Living in Murray. Mary was a music teacher in Montgomery County, Maryland, for most of her career after graduating from Carson-Newman University in Tennessee. She was a choir director for her church in Maryland for many years. At one point she moved to Mt. Vernon, Virginia, but continued teaching in Maryland. She eventually retired and settled down in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she was a faithful member of First Presbyterian Church for many years. At the end of 2018, she moved back to Murray to be closer to family. 

Mary was known for being remarkably charitable and was a beautiful person, often complimented by others, not only for her outgoing personality, but also for her gifted sense of fashion and love for hats, scarves and all accessories. Her greatest passions were music (teaching, playing and singing), travel and shopping. Occasionally, she combined all three by taking her school choral groups on trips to destinations across the US and abroad. Her radiant, faith, joy, humor and zeal for life, along with her natural ability to always focus on the positive, gleamed such a bright light for everyone around her. She never had children, but loved her nieces and nephews and treated them as if they were her own.

Mary is survived by her brother, Wally Higdon and wife Judy of Mayfield; nephews George Laney (Debbie) of Falling Waters, West Virginia, and Charles Laney (Kelley) of Greenville, South Carolina; nieces Mary Anne Rogers (Wes) of Murray, Jennifer Cornelison (Bob) of Kirksey, Amy Whisnant (Matt) of Kingsport, Tennessee, and Christy Jo (Hyuk) of Centennial, Colorado; great-nieces and great-nephews, Lane Greenbank, Marny Britt, Elijah Laney, Jonathan Rogers, Holly Constantino, C.J. Laney, William Laney, Laken Darnell, Brandon Watkins, Carson Whisnant, Camden Whisnant and Josiah Jo; and two great-great nieces, Lorelye and Adley Darnell.   

A virtual memorial services will be streamed on the J.H. Churchill Funeral Home & Cremation Services Facebook page at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.  The link to the service will also be available at the funeral home’s website.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House, 803 Poplar St., Murray, KY 42071.
