Mary was born October 25, 1926 to Herman Kueber and Otillia (Feidler) Kueber at Park Rapids, Minnesota in a family with 13 children (2 of which died at birth).   She grew up in Minnesota and when she was grown, she moved to south Texas.   Mary was very family oriented and made a point to visit the family in Minnesota every year, calling her siblings who had moved to other states to be sure they would all be there together.

Mary was a hard worker and worked hard all her life.  She began preparing the family desserts as a teenager and worked in Minnesota in a bakery, and then in south Texas she worked in a café.   While working at the café she met Maybell Nettles and she lived with Maybell and Odis.  Through this family she met her  husband, Clyde.

Mary Agnes and Clyde W. Ferrill married and moved to Dallas where he worked.  Their son was born in Dallas and her daughters were born in Groesbeck.  In Dallas, she worked for Taylor Publishing, which printed school yearbooks. Although the family stayed in Dallas during the week while Clyde and Mary worked, they came to Box Church on the weekends and always considered Box Church to be “home.”   In the summer of 1968, they moved permanently to Box Church.  She worked at the sewing factory in Mexia and the Mexia State School, working day and night for awhile at both places.     She retired after seventeen years at the State School.

Although retired from her jobs, she remained a hard worker and was always busy.  In her younger years she enjoyed riding her horse “Old Yeller” with Jasper White as well as fishing.   She might be found building fence, working on the house, or woodworking.  She loved gardening, shopping for roses and raising them, picking up pecans, sewing, quilting, especially enjoyed ceramics, watching the hummingbirds in her feeders, and raising her poodles. She especially loved her family, all of her siblings, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and would do anything for them, or for anyone else who needed her help.   She leaves behind a large family with many lives she has touched with her love.

Mary has been preceded in death by her parents, Herman Joseph and Otillia Kueber; husband, Clyde Ferrill; brothers, Joe, George, Leo, Barney, Herman “Pete”, Marse, and Paul “Shorty” Kueber; sister, Margaret “Maggie” Hein; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Herbert Hein, J.C. and Marie White, Elana Kueber, and Delores Kueber; and three grandchildren, Kelby Keith Aills, Lara Sullivan, and Mary-Jane Hensley.

She is survived by a son, David Ferrill of Box Church; daughter Margaret Ferrill of Box Church; daughter and son-in-law, Susan and Frank Crowson of Box Church; daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Howard Medlock of Groesbeck.
