Mary McNair

Obituary of Mary McNair

Mary Lee Fisher was born on March 16, 1952 in Monroe, Michigan. She was one of ten children born from the union of her parents: the late Richard Hardaway and the late Geneva (Austin) Fisher. Mary stayed in Monroe and met the love of her life, John McNair and married him on September 17, 1973. It was from this union that came the birth of their three children: two sons and a daughter.

Mary was a stay at home mom. In her younger years, she enjoyed roller-skating and was pretty good at it. She preferred to be in the company of her friends because she loved to socialize. Her outgoing personality made it easy for her to make friends. She was known for being feisty and was never afraid to speak her mind (even when she was wrong). As time went on, her social circle got smaller but that didn’t bother her because it left her more time to spend with those that meant the most to her.

Above anything else, she loved her family. She was close with her sisters and always enjoyed their company. She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren and cherished the time she got to spend with them. Mary was a loving soul who will be missed by everyone who knew her.
