Mary Jane Tarry

Mary Jane Tarry, loving mother, daughter, sister, and friend, age 66, of Louisa since 1972, was called home by our Lord and Savior on Friday, March 1st, 2013 at Louisa Health Care and Rehab. She was born in Mt. Airy, N.C. on February 16, 1947. She left all those in her path with a smile on their face and a heart filled with love. Mary Jane was known for her sense of humor and contagious laugh. Retired from Bluegreen Resorts, she was a hard worker who enjoyed gardening and adored music. She was often found playing the guitar or the piano, and entertaining anyone around by singing a tune. Above all, she was most proud of her children and grandchildren, and taught us all to cherish moments with family. Mary Jane was a gift to those blessed to know her, as she brought laughter, music and light into this world. She was preceded in death by her father, Clarence Olin Nunn. She leaves behind her mother Ziney Alzry Nunn; three sons, Charles Davis III, his wife Jeanette of Elkton, MD, Jason Davis, his fiancée Jennifer of Mineral, Joe Tarry Jr., his wife Ashley of Bumpass; two daughters, Michelle Floody, her husband Jody, and Pamela Davis, both of Mineral; six brothers, Kelly Nunn, his wife Becky, R.D. Nunn, his wife Brenda, Alden Nunn and Arnold Nunn, all of Mt. Airy, N.C., Saford Nunn, his wife Pat, of Hillsville, and Elvin Nunn, his wife Sharon, of Bristol; three sisters, Rhonda Pruitt, her husband Willie, of Eden, Vanise Bowman, her husband Michael, of Mt. Airy, N.C., and Shirley George, her husband Robert, of Stuart; and 16 grandchildren, Charles Davis IV, Meagan Yuksel, Amanda Davis, Jonathan Sprouse, Nicholas Sprouse, Jeremy Sprouse, Allison Sprouse, Matthew Floody, Jarrett Floody, Samantha Clements, Angel Clements, Krista Davis, Jason Davis Jr., Amber Clements, Alexis Clements, and Joe Thomas Tarry, III; and several nieces, nephews and friends.

Where in the world do i start? Mary Jane was not your average lady.So caring,a heart made of gold.She always brightened up any room she walked into.She would always play her guitar and sing for us.What a beautiful voice. she was more than a friend ,she is family. She took my son under her wing and preached to him just as much as i did.Always trying to get him to walk a straight line.Me and her have spent a many days together talking about life,the kids.We kind of went our different ways as life tends to do,but she would always take the time when she saw me to ask about my family and how everyone was doing. To say she is going to be missed,is putting it lightly.My heart goes out to all of you. I love you Mary Jane.
VANISE AND FAMILY, YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
Michelle, Jason & JoeI met Mary Jane at Louisa Nursing Home when she shared the room with my mom. She immediately became one of my best friends and I loved her dearly. Words cannot express the sympathy I feel for all of you. I will never forget her as in that short time, she became just like a member of my family.
Our deepest sympathies to the remaining family. We will always cherish the trips we took to see you guys. Jane was always fun and always loving to all of us. Our prayers are with you guys during this difficult time. We will always have fond memories of Jane and the times we all spent together.
