Mary M. &uot;Mag&uot; Boone, 60, of 1000 Litton Lane, Apt. 3B, Suffolk, was born on Feb. 9, 1943. On Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2003, God in his infinite wisdom, who’s too wise to make a mistake, with outstretched arms, called home our beloved mother, sister, aunt, and friend. After a long courageous battle with cancer, she went home to an eternal rest from her labor, while at home surrounded by loved ones.

She was born in North Carolina and a resident of Suffolk. She was a member of New Mt. Joy Family Worship Center, where she served as a member of the Pastor’s Aide.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Johnny Bell Boone and Mary Elizabeth Parker Boone; and two brothers, Wendell and Alexander Boone.
