Obituary for MaryLee Presley

A memorial service for MaryLee Presley will be held at the Nell Pape Garden Center at 1901 5th Street in Waco, Texas, on Sunday, March 11, 2018, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., with a reception to follow. Please join her family and friends in celebrating her life. MaryLee, who was also known as Honeymother, was well loved by family, friends and her faith community. She loved Proverbs 8:32-35:
“Now therefore, O sons listen to Me, for blessed are they who keep my ways. Heed instruction and be wise, and do not neglect. Blessed is the man who listens to Me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For he who finds Me, finds life, and obtains favor from YHUH”

MaryLee had such a zest for life and openly shared the joy of her salvation with anyone she met. Her enthusiasm for the LORD was a blessing to many, and she will be greatly missed.
She often quoted her favorite character Mame from the stage play “Auntie Mame”:
“Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!”

Honeymother would then proclaim, “L’chayim”
“Choose Life” Deuteronomy 30:19
