Mary Katherine Spears, 82 of Woodlawn, AR, died August 16, 2020 at Hospice of Texarkana, after her losing her battle with Alzheimer/Dementia. She was born in Fordyce, Arkansas on Feb. 18, 1938 to the late Willard and Muriel Walton. She married Daniel Spears June 2, 1957. She was a graduate of Fordyce High School. Mary grew up in Fordyce. She and her family moved to Woodlawn in 1973 and it has been home ever since. She was a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, homemaker, loved being outside, and an avid animal lover. Her house was open to all no matter who you were. There was always kind words, a smile and you were going to leave there with a full tummy. She loved watching her children and grandchildren play sports. You would always find her watching baseball, softball, basketball or football and she supported all the teams and kids whether she was their real or surrogate “MawMaw”. She was a live long friend. She is preceded in death by her parents, Willard and Muriel Walton of Fordyce, Ar., sister, Marjorie Walton Dobbs also of Fordyce, AR. She is survived by her husband Daniel Spears of Woodlawn, AR, daughters Tina Spears Robinson (Bruce) of Texarkana, AR and Stacy Spears Lem (Howard) of Woodlawn, AR, Four grandchildren, Autumn Lem of Fort Smith, AR, Lesli Robinson Banister (Jason) of Texarkana, AR, Kyle Lem (Amanda) of Woodlawn, AR and Melissa Robinson Matthews (Jace) of Texarkana, AR and 7 great grandchildren, Dalton Lem, Asher and Tucker Lem, Madison and Luke Banister, Harper and Tenley Matthews. There will be a private ceremony planned for the family later in the fall. We ask that to memorialize Mary, donations be made in her memory to Alzheimer’s Foundation or Hospice of Texarkana.
