Mary Jack Obituary

Mary E. Jack, age 99, passed away peacefully at Trinity Manor Personal Care Home on June 20, 2024. She was born August 3, 1924, on the family farm in the Sharptop community. An avid learner, Mary started school at 6 years old because her mother wouldn’t let her start a year early. She was immediately promoted to the 2nd grade because she could pass the 1st grade test of being able to read & complete simple mathematical computations. After completing grammar school, Mary attended Pickens High School where upon graduation she began a short-lived teaching career. After completing one year in the education field, Mary moved to Atlanta in 1942 & found work at Davidson Paxton before taking a position in the auditing department of the Sears and Roebuck Co. While living in Atlanta, she met & married her husband, Leroy.

Together, Mary & Leroy owned & operated Jack’s Floor Covering & Finishing in Canton for 40 years. In addition to keeping the books for the business, Mary also worked alongside her husband installing carpet, vinyl, & hard wood floors. Even on the jobsite, Mary was never seen with a hair out of place or nails unpolished. She was the epitome of a southern lady even on a construction site.

Mary was a devoted wife, mother, & Mawmaw who loved her family deeply & found the greatest joy in spending time with them. Whether it was weekly dinner dates, October treks to Ellijay for apples, or larger Christmas gatherings, Mary was always eager to participate & frequently the orchestrator of the event. In addition to spending time with family members, Mary also enjoyed reading, needle work, traveling, & playing canasta. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Canton & an active member of her Sunday School class until the Covid pandemic.

Mary’s legacy of hard work, strength, compassion, & faith leaves a lasting imprint on those she loved & who loved her. Her presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.  Mary is preceded in death by her parents, J. Frank & Buena Mitchell; husband, Leroy H. Jack, Sr.; brother & sister-in-law, Fred & Virginia Mitchell; sister & brother-in-law, Donnie Jean & H. F. Wright. She is survived by her son, Leroy H. Jack, Jr. (Jean); daughter, Joan Hill (Tom); several grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as step-great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great-nephews and great-nieces.  Memorial contributions in Mary’s name may be made to Trinity Manor Personal Care Home, 3200 Trinity Church Rd., Canton, GA 30115.
