Mary Gavin Nesbitt
Funeral Date: 10/17/2019

Mary Ellen Gavin Nesbitt age 82 of Pansy AR died Thursday October 17, 2019 at home under Hospice care. She was born July 26, 1937 to John and Arys Gavin of Pansy. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Robert “Bob” Nesbitt, a granddaughter Chavaun Shawhan and three great grandsons, Gavin, JJ and Hunter all of Palm Coast FL. She is preceded in death by her parents, and two daughters, Elizabeth Ragsdale, Madonna Ragsdale Fox and a grandson Nathan Shawhan. She was a member of Union Methodist Church at Rye AR. Her pastor, Boyd Savage, was able to spend a short time with Mary before she passed and that was a blessing. She worked in the Family Business with her husband Bob and they both retired in 1991 to Florida. They moved to Pansy in 2006 to take care of Mary’s mom, Arys, who needed assistance as Mary was an only child. Mary graduated from Woodlawn High School in 1955 and moved to Houston, TX a short time later. She met Bob there in 1964 and they were wed in 1967. Before she joined husband Bob in their family business, she worked at the Lady Lake FL sheriff’s office as the dispatcher. A special thanks goes out to Joe and Jessica French who having been helping in the care of Mary who had been battling poor health for all this year. Thanks also to all her friends and family for keeping her in your prayers. “Rest in Peace Mary, with God Almighty”. There will be no service at this time; a memorial service for the love of my life to be announced later. Services were by Frazer’s Funeral Home.
