Mary Elizabeth Sublett

March 7, 1925 — July 8, 2022

Mary Elizabeth Sublett, 97, was called by our heavenly father on July 8, 2022. She was born to Ben & Lillie Holt on March 7, 1925 and was the baby sister to Wyley Holt. Mary graduated from Farmersville High School in 1943 where she rode her favorite horse Bill to and from school. She married Forrest Sublett on December 16, 1961; together they discovered their love of camping and traveling. When she wasn't traveling you could often find her in her garden tending to her beautiful flowers. Mary worked as a book keeper at Lark Electric for many years. She was very strong in her Baptist faith and became a member of First Baptist Church on October 31, 1976.

Mary fought her battle with cancer the same way she lived her entire life, with faith and grace. Mary is so deserving of the heavenly reward after a long life well lived. Her faith in God, her family, and her beloved dog Joe were the most important things to her. Although, she no longer suffers or knows no pain, there is no doubt she will be forever missed, forever loved, and forever remembered.

She is currently experiencing an amazing reunion in heaven with her parents, Ben & Lillie Holt, brother Wyley Holt, husband of 50 years, Forrest Sublett, her daughter Freida Pagan, son in law Ken Church, son in law Richard Pagan, along with many friends and extended family.

Mary's legacy continues on through her daughter Anna Church, son Ben (Gina) Berry; Grandchildren, Brad (April) Farmer, Zack Farmer, Karen Sublett, Tiffany (Jeremy) Calhoun, Sara (Wayne) Yeager, Meggan (John) Clark, Clint Berry, 11 Great Grandchildren, and Joe her beloved dog and favorite "child", who laid beside her until the very end.

Please join us in celebration that Mary Elizabeth Sublett is going home to the heavenly fathers open arms at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. The funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Saturday, where visitation will begin at 12:00 p.m. with Brother Paul Strahan presiding.
