Mary Carol Sheets Gregory, 72, of Paradise Valley passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 7, 2022. Mary was born on December 26, 1949 in Alice, Texas. She was the daughter of the late H.R. and Mary Smith. Mary was married to the love of her life, Chuck Sheets, for over twenty-five years until his passing in 2007. She went on to marry her second love, Dean Gregory, until his passing in 2018.
Mary loved animals, especially her dogs which she mostly adopted from shelters to give them a second chance. She was also exceptionally generous to many animal, veteran, and educational organizations throughout her lifetime.
Whether it was whisking them away on a great adventure or treating them to Easter Bunch, Mary was a wonderful friend to all who knew her.
Mary will be greatly missed by her fur babies Lola and Zeke. And by her human friends, Suzie and Johnny, Margit and Hank, Jan and Julie, Linda, Sandra, Armando, Robin, Dana, Dick, Cyndi, Tracey, Todd, and many others she touched along the way.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Chuck, his son Daniel, her husband Dean, and her dear friend Glenda. She is survived by her mother-in-law Laverne Wallace, as well as Chuck’s daughters Debra, Marilyn, Candace, and his grandchildren.
A funeral service will be held on Thursday May 12 at 1:30 pm at Messinger Mortuaries on East Indian School Road. A reception will follow at The Camelback Golf Club on Mockingbird Lane at 3:00 pm.
