Mary Hinds

Mary Elizabeth Cunningham Hinds passed away on March 2, 2024.  She was born on December 5, 1933, in Deweyville, Ohio to parents Daisy and Rolley Cunningham.

She was preceded in death by her son Jeffery; two brothers: Walter and Arthur and a sister Ruth as did a dear aunt, Florence and her Uncle Joseph.  

Mary is survived by her three children: Mitzi, Timothy and Steven; her daughter-in-law Sue and many nieces and nephews.

Mary graduated from McComb High School in 1951. She married Jim on August 10, 1952. In 1979 she graduated from Pine Rest School of Nursing with an LPN degree.

Mary and Jim had a strong love for their family and friends.  They loved traveling and have visited all of the states except Alaska and Hawaii. They have traveled to some European countries and have taken several cruises.   In the later years, they settled down in Plainwell, Michigan where they belong to the First Presbyterian Church of Plainwell. Their church family was very dear to them. Mary belonged to the Red Hat Society, TOPS 610 and was a charter member of the GFWC at Gun Lake, which was started by Joan Weick. Mary wrote for the Gun Lake news and for the Wayland Globe.  She cherished her family and friends and loved to laugh and make the best of any situation.  She had a strong faith in God and believes that love never dies and we will all be together again in Heaven. God held her hand and took her Home.

Following her wishes, cremation has taken place, and no funeral services will be held.  Her wish for you is that you live your lives to the fullest.   In lieu of flowers, please do something kind for someone in need.
