Mary was born at home on July 23, 1951, in Eaton, Ohio, to William and Margaret Jurden. She loved volunteering at the Salvation Army Store and at Gateway Hunger Relief Center. Mary was an avid horse lover, including collecting pictures and other horse memorabilia. She enjoyed attending Figure 8 races with her father. Mary also loved rodeos, demolition derbies, boating, and going to the ocean and beach. Her favorite flowers were lilies. Mary was such a vibrant, independent woman, who was full of love. She will be deeply missed by so many.
She leaves behind her two brothers, Douglas and Bill Jurden; four children, Mary Jo Jones, Charles Musselman, Amanda Brower, and Brian Musselman; five grandkids, Zack, Ricki, Austin, Linzey, and Sonya; seven great-grandsons, Coda, Zayden, Nate, Bradlee, Jesse, Alex, and Levi; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family; and many close friends, including her dog, Ninja.
In Heaven, Mary will be joining her parents; brother, Kenneth Alexander; four sisters, Betty Bess, Shirley Riley, Roberta Stewart, and Sharon Harrison; great-grandson, Jesse; and son-in-law, Ricky Jones.
