Mary Carolyn Denny

JOPLIN, Mo. — Mary Carolyn (Hart) Denny, 89, of Joplin, Mo., passed away Aug. 18, 2013.

She was born May 23, 1924, in Moran, Kan., but spent most of her school years in Iola, Kan. She was the daughter of Leota and Calvin Hart.

She formerly lived in Iantha, but had been a resident of Spring River Christian Village in Joplin, first in the duplexes for 17 years and then independently at the Congregational Building for the last two years.

Mary married Verne Denny, April 13, 1944. He preceded her in death Sept. 10, 2011.

Also preceding her are sons-in-law, Mike Savage and Warren Roehrs.

Survivors include children, Judy Roehrs, Iantha, Bill and wife, Donna, Aurora, Colo., Joe and wife, Loretta, Mesa, Ariz., and Cyndy Savage, of Lampe. They also had five grandchildren, Kim Roehrs, Scott Roehrs, Ron Roehrs, Russ Savage and Michelle Savage French; 10 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter.

Mary was not only a loving wife and mother, but also a true volunteer in the United Methodist church at Iantha, for nearly 50 years, the Liberal school and later the Spring River Christian Village (SRCV) Auxiliary, volunteering many hours as a seamstress. She also enjoyed sharing her sewing talent by making many gifts for family and friends.

Graveside services will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at Iantha Cemetery with visitation to follow. Pastor Allen Brintnall will officiate.

Contributions may be made to the Iantha United Methodist Church or Spring River Christian Village Auxiliary.

Arrangements are under the direction of Konantz-Warden Funeral Home, Lamar.
