Mary Magdalene Gainous, 89, passed away on Friday, March 22, 2024, at her residence in Byron. Born on March 29, 1934, Mary was the daughter of the late Royce Bernard McDaniel and Amy Whiddon Vanburnt.

In her spare time, she crocheted and was an avid reader. For over four decades, Mary taught Sunday School and for 25 years was an Auxiliary Volunteer at the Houston County Hospital.
