           WADESBORO – On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, Mrs. Mary Shepherd Gaddy Trexler, 99, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home.

 

            Funeral services will be 12:00 PM, Saturday, June 8, 2024, in the Chapel of Leavitt Funeral Home with Rev. Heather McIntyre and Mr. Ken Caulder officiating. Interment will follow in Anson Memorial Park.

 

            The family will greet friends from 10:00AM until 12:00PM at the funeral home on Saturday and other times at the home.

 

            Mary Shep was born November 20, 1924, in Anson County, NC and was a daughter of the late David Eugene Gaddy and the late Lilly Belle Shepherd Gaddy. She was a graduate of Deep Creek High School, and she was most proud of her upbringing and family ties to the Deep Creek Community.

 

            She was retired from West Knitting Mills in Wadesboro with more than 30 years of service. She and her late husband both exemplified a strong work ethic before their children and grandchildren. She proved a hard day’s work was good for anyone.

 

            Mary Shep was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Wadesboro for more than 70 years, where she had been a part of the choir and Presbyterian women’s circle. She was first introduced to a community of faith as a child at Union Methodist Church where she was baptized, and this place still held a special place in her heart throughout the years. Her parents and her brothers and sisters were later a part of Camden Presbyterian Church, where, as a young girl she played the piano. Music and faith have always been a treasured part of her life.

 

            A loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, she leaves a legacy of dignity, southern charm and faith to all who knew and loved her.

 

            Those who are left to cherish her memory are her children, David Trexler and wife, Peggy, Glenn Trexler and wife, Vera, Dianne Deese and husband ,Danny and Dwight Trexler and wife, Jeanne all of Wadesboro, Carol Krogh and husband, Peter of Nantucket and Gloria Long of Rockingham; her grandchildren, Robbie Trexler and wife, Susan, Dave Trexler and wife, Emily, Shannon Thoms and husband, Scott, Frank Trexler and wife, Ginger, Bryan Trexler and wife, Gretchen, Anne Hyatt and husband, Luke, Holly Stewart and husband, Greg, Alicia Pagel and husband, Harry, Tre’ Wullschleger and wife, Lauren, Zachary Long, Mairy Tyson and husband, James, Kathryn Barbee and husband, Jake and Daniel Trexler and wife, Meghan; her great-grandchildren, Sarah Trexler, Aaron Trexler, Abby Trexler, Alyssa Trexler, Dylan Trexler, Tripp Trexler, Luke Hyatt, Emma Trexler, Trista Trexler, Trent Trexler, Dock Hyatt, Landon Trexler, Trinity Trexler, Brady Hyatt, Jax Hyatt, Beau Stewart, Wes Stewart, Jack Wullschleger, Lily Wullschleger, Morgan Pagel, Whitney Pagel, Wyatt Tyson, Lily Tyson, Finnley Barbee, Belle Trexler; her sister, Sue Durham of Apex and her nieces and nephews and their families.
