She was born August 14, 1921, in Sunbury, OH to the late George L. and Charlotte M. Budd.

Some of Mary Jane’s fondest memories were of dancing as a young girl and traveling with her friend to Florida every Memorial Day. She also loved cats, which she referred to as her babies. But most of all, she loved her family, and treasured their time together.

Mary Jane volunteered at several different places in Morrow County, including the Morrow County Hospital, and was a member of the Edison United Methodist Church.

She will be dearly missed by her son David O. Gwinn, her grandchildren Patricia, Jennifer, Kathleen, and David L. and his wife Tracey, and her 8 great-grandchildren.

A graveside service celebrating her life will be held on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 11:00 am in Sunbury Memorial Park, with Celebrant Don Lockwood officiating.

If desired, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to the Morrow County Hospital “Flamingo Twigs”, at 651 West Marion Road, Mt Gilead, OH 43338.
