Obituary for Mary Ellen Christmas

Mary Ellen Christmas, 87, of Boonville, Indiana passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 14, 2018, at Deaconess Gateway Newburgh, Indiana.
She was born on January 20, 1931 in Warrick County, Indiana, the daughter of the late Louis and Helen (Hodges) Hay.
She was known to many as “Mammaw” because of her warm smile and compassionate heart. Mary was a talented seamstress and when her children were young she sewed clothes for them to wear. She was employed at Embassy Apparel and at Anchor Supply where she used her natural sewing talents to earn a living. For many years Mary would prepare Sunday dinners for the entire family, because she knew if she cooked, they would come! These Sunday get-togethers became a tradition that she missed as she became older.
She is survived by her children, Joyce Day (Larry), Vickie (James) Keown, Donald (Anita) Christmas; stepson, Charles (Barb) Christmas; five grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, one great-great grandchild; brother, William Paul Hay; and many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her husband of fifty years, Charles Gurley Christmas and two of her siblings.
Services are 1:00 P.M. Monday, August 20, 2018 at Koehler Funeral Home in Boonville, Indiana. Burial will be at Maple Grove Cemetery in Boonville.
Visitation will be from 10:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. Monday at the funeral home.
Koehler Funeral Home of Boonville, Indiana, is entrusted with care.
