Mary Elizabeth Floyd Walden, age 87 of Mt. Airy, Georgia and formerly of Moultrie, Georgia, entered into her heavenly home at Habersham Home West with her family at her side on Thursday, April 22, 2021.
Mary was born in Jesup, Georgia on February 03, 1934, to Rev. John J. Floyd & Sula Hesters Floyd. Her father moved the family to Moultrie in 1950 to pastor the Moultrie Church of God. Here she met her lifelong love, Robert, and was married for 49 years. She worked for Bell-Kennon Tractor Company as a bookkeeper/secretary for 52 years. Later, she worked for 9 years at Southwest Georgia Community Action Council.
Almost 4 years ago, she moved to Mt. Airy to live with Grady, her son, and daughter-in-law, Lisa. She joined Clarkesville Baptist Church. Mary loved her church family and quickly became an active member until her sudden illness. She had a great love for welcoming people to become a part of the church.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Robert Walden, Sr.; her parents, Rev. John J. Floyd & Sula Hesters Floyd; stepmother, Mae Harkins Floyd; sister, Doris (Marvin) Strickland; and brothers, Nathan (Ginny) Floyd & Darius Floyd.
