Mary Helon Trawick, known affectionately as Mary to her friends and family, passed away peacefully on February 2, 2024, at the age of 81, in her hometown of Dothan, Alabama. Born on July 30, 1942, to the late Robert Earl Lee and Ruby Rogers Lee, Mary's life was a testament to the power of kindness, love, and the simple joys of everyday life.
Mary's journey began in Dothan, where she grew up surrounded by a large and loving family. She carried the warmth of her upbringing throughout her life, touching the hearts of everyone she met. Mary was the beloved sister to Sherry Choate and Roger Lee, and was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Joe, Richard, and Eugene Lee, and her sisters Edna Aplin and Sue Blacksheer.
Mary's capacity for love was boundless, as evidenced by her devotion to her family. She is survived by her son, Jeff Hollis (Carol), her cherished grandchildren, Ashley Peterson, Melissa Peterson, and Jackson Hollis, and her adored great-grandchildren, Addyson Raybon and Nikolas Mitra.
Her life was also marked by love and loss, having been widowed by her first husband, William Johnsie Hollis, and later by Douglas Trawick. She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Robbie Peterson. Despite these hardships, Mary's gentle nature and resilient spirit never wavered.
Mary's professional life was characterized by her role as a homemaker, where she created a warm and welcoming environment for her family and friends. She also dedicated several years of service working in security at the Dothan Airport.
Traveling with her husband was one of Mary's greatest pleasures. Together, they explored new places, creating lasting memories that she would fondly recount to her family. Her love for the outdoors was evident in her beautiful garden, a place where she found peace and solace, nurturing her plants with the same care she gave to her relationships.
Mary's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of love, kindness, and gentle strength. Her memory will be cherished and kept alive in the stories shared by those who knew her and in the laughter of her great-grandchildren, who will grow up knowing the love of their great-grandmother.
