Memorial services for Mary Flueckiger, 79, of Purcell were held Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Purcell. Services were under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mrs. Flueckiger passed away Sunday, October 16, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.
Mary was born July 11, 1943 in Randolph, Massachusetts, the youngest of six children born to Lawrence and Florence (Ayers) Sass. She was born and raised in the Randolph area and graduated high school from there in 1961.
Mary met Bill Flueckiger, a charming young man, at the riding stables and began to date him. Bill and Mary hit it off instantly. Neither had a family history of livestock, but they both loved horses. In May of 1961, they married and began their life journey together. Together the couple raised 2 strong and fiercely independent daughters. They were married 52 amazing years before the passing of Bill.
Mary was a rancher, a bus driver, and could do just about anything she set her mind to. She could do carpentry, plumbing and electrical work. She was independent and determined. Mary was also loving and had the absolute best heart. She loved doing kind, loving things and wanted no recognition for doing them. It was just the way she was. Mary loved horses and everything about them. She hauled horses worldwide. She liked going to the movies and parties and enjoyed making purses. Mary loved her girls more than anything. She was the best mom ever. She will be dearly missed!
She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill Flueckiger; her parents, Lawrence and Florence Sass; her brothers, Larry Sass Jr. and George Sass; and her sisters, Doty Macy and Ruthie Schneider.
Mary is survived by her daughters, Kristine Glover and husband, Steve, of Purcell and Cindy White and husband, Joel, of Pauls Valley; her grandchildren, Will White and wife, Tanja, Dustin Glover and wife, Crystal, Justin White and wife, Jessica, Clint Glover and wife, Shamane, Jessica Ridgeway, Cole White, Jack White and Allison White; her great-grandchildren, Emilie White, Lee White, Rosie White and Serafina White; and a sister, Dolly Seyfert of Randolph, Massachusetts.
