Mary Hunt Bullock

Mary Hunt Bullock, beloved wife, mother, and friend, passed away on November 23, 2023, at Hospice Family Care in Huntsville, Alabama. Born on January 27, 1925, in Sturgis, Mississippi, Mary lived a remarkable life filled with love, compassion, and dedication to her family and community.

Mary's journey began in Sturgis where she attended school before eventually graduating from Wood Junior College. After completing her education, Mary embarked on a professional career as a secretary at Mississippi State University. Her commitment and exceptional work ethic were evident throughout her tenure at the university.

In 1950, Mary's path took an extraordinary turn when she married the love of her life, Rex Bullock. Together they built a beautiful life centered around love, faith, and devotion to their children. Mary gracefully transitioned from her role as a secretary to that of a loving homemaker. Her nurturing spirit and selflessness knew no bounds as she dedicated herself wholeheartedly to creating a warm and welcoming home for her family.

Mary's passion for community involvement led her to become an active member of various churches wherever life took her and Rex. She played an integral role in shaping the spiritual growth of others through teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Additionally, she made invaluable contributions by serving on committees and lending a helping hand during church suppers or when fellow members were ill. Mary was known for being one of the first faces to greet newcomers with open arms when they arrived in town.

Beyond her many roles within the community, Mary found joy in being a den mother for Cub Scouts—a testament to her boundless energy and commitment to guiding young minds. It was through activities like these that she made lasting impressions on those around her.

Mary Hunt Bullock's legacy extends beyond her accomplishments; it lies within the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. She will be deeply missed by her family, including her children Karen, Ronnie, and Ken, and many others who were fortunate enough to know her as a friend or neighbor.

Arrangements are being handled through Legacy Chapel Funeral Home in Madison, AL and Hartman Hughes Funeral Home in Tylertown, MS.  A graveside service will be held to honor Mary's life. It will take place on November 29, 2023, at Elliott Cemetery in Tylertown, Mississippi. The service will commence at 2:00 PM. In this final gathering, we will celebrate the life of a remarkable woman who touched our lives in immeasurable ways.

A meal will be served immediately following at the home of Becky and John Hawke.  Friends and family are invited to attend.

As we bid farewell to Mary Hunt Bullock, let us remember her as a beacon of love, strength, and unwavering faith. Her memory will forever inspire us to embrace each day with gratitude and to cherish our loved ones with the same warmth and compassion that she exemplified throughout her beautiful life. May she rest in eternal peace.
