Mary Margaret Edgell

Mary Margaret Edgell, 79, of Philpot passed away Thursday, June 22, 2023, with her loving family at her side. The Daviess County native was born December 13, 1943, to the late James Lucian Montgomery Sr. and Helen Ruth Roby Montgomery. Mary received her LPN degree and was employed at Mercy Hospital. Once her children began arriving, she devoted her time and energy to raising her family. She was always staying busy with her seamstress skills and helping others. Mary was a devoted Catholic and served in many ways at St. Pius X Parrish including bereavement dinners, picnics, vacation bible school, and daycare. She was always a “church mother” to each priest when they arrived and helped them to get settled. Mary loved working jigsaw puzzles, crocheting, knitting, and quilting.  

 

In addition to her parents, Mary also was preceded in death by her husband of 31 years, Wallace E. Edgell Jr. in 1999 and her brother, James Lucian Montgomery Jr.

 

Those left to cherish her memory include her five children, James W. Edgell, Lisa Carmon (Greg), Michael Edgell (Amber), Therese Ward (Kwame), and Matthew Edgell (Robyn); fourteen grandchildren and five   great grandchildren; brothers, Frank Montgomery (Margaret), Ray Montgomery (Peggy), Gene Montgomery, Robert Montgomery (Stacy), and Martha Farris; numerous nieces and nephews.

 

The funeral Mass for Mary Edgell will be 11:00 am Tuesday, June 27 at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Visitation will be Monday from 3:00 until 7:00 pm with prayers at 6:30 pm and Tuesday from 9:30 until 10:30 am at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. The burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery.
