Obituary for Mary Eleanor Marstaller

Mary Eleanor Leggott Marstaller went to her heavenly home Tuesday, January 30, 2018. The Memorial service will be 1:30 p.m., Saturday, February 3, at Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey Funeral Home with Rev. Tim Jarrell officiating. Visitation will follow the service.

Mary Eleanor was born September 11, 1922, in Waco, Texas, to Arthur and Myrtle Leggott. A Waco native her entire life, she attended Waco schools, Baylor University, and 4-C Business College. On September 11, 1942, she married R.L. “Buster” Marstaller. For many years, she supported Buster in the family grocery business.

Mary Eleanor was an active member of Austin Avenue United Methodist Church. For many years she honored and praised our Lord as she played beautiful hymns for her Sunday School class. The Scripture “Whatsoever you have done unto the least of these, you have done unto me,” guided her. She was always there to visit friends in the hospital, retirement centers, and shut-ins at home. She was a doer and was known for delivering tons of homemade cookies and delicious chicken salad sandwiches when there were illnesses, deaths, or other needs. Mary Eleanor also loved playing bridge and was a member of several groups. She was devoted to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

After she learned of her aneurysm a few years ago, she elected to live life to the fullest. She continued to attend church, visit friends, enjoy family, exercise and play bridge. The Scripture “This is the day that Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it,” was how she lived.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and brothers, Bob Leggott and wife, Bobette, and Arthur “Red” Leggott, Jr., and wife, Carol.

She is survived by her daughter, Lynda Conner and husband, Scott, of Naples, Florida; son, Bill Marstaller and wife, Karen, of Waco; grandson, Matt Marstaller and wife, Lindsey, of Waco and Clif Marstaller and wife, Beth, of Burleson, Texas; and seven great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, D. T. Leggott and wife, Cecile, of Waco; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
