Obituary for Mary Carol Palmer

Mary C. Palmer
Eaton Rapids, Michigan
Formerly of Standish

On June 5, 2019 Mary Carol Palmer, of Eaton Rapids, formerly of Standish, passed away after a short illness. Mary was born in Bay City to Eva (Richards) and Lester Florance. Mary cherished family, and her love for them will always be remembered. For 26 years, Mary’s husband, Burton Palmer, was a Standard Oil distributor in the Standish area. During that time, Mary managed the business out of their home. After years of hard work, Mary and Burton spent many enjoyable years in Bonita Springs, Fl.
Mary loved to read, finishing 100 books each year. Before her stroke in 2008, she weekly dedicated hour after hour, researching her family’s genealogy as well as her husband’s. Her card playing skills were highly respected, and everyone wished to be her partner.

Mary is survived by her daughter, Cathy (Michael) Carr of Eaton Rapids, three granddaughters, Christy Avery (Justin Woodard), Jennifer (Spence) Anderson, and Teresa (John) McCook and five great granddaughters, Heidi and Holly Anderson, Bryn and Logan Woodard, and Stella McCook. She is also survived by her brother, Dick (Jan) Florance and sister, Margaret (Jim) Warden. Besides her parents, Mary was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Burton, in 2013 and her infant sister, Patricia.

The funeral service will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Lee Ramsey Funeral Home-STANDISH CHAPEL, Standish, Michigan with Pastor Randy Brokaw officiating. The family will greet family and friends from 10 am Saturday till time of service at 11 am.

Memorial donations may be sent to the Standish Historical Depot & Welcome Center, P.O. Box 456, Standish, MI 48658. Online condolences may be sent to leeramsayrivertownfh.com.

The family would sincerely like to thank the Island City Assisted Living staff for their loving care of Mary for the past 7 ½ years.
