Corpus Christi, TX

Mary Frances Osborne, a cherished soul and beacon of light, was called to her heavenly home on February 26, 2024. Born on January 20, 1945, in Corpus Christi, Texas, Mary lived a life abundant in love, faith, and service, and it was in this same beloved city that she drew her last breath, after a battle with sickness, surrounded by the warmth of her family.Mary, known affectionately by those who loved her, was a steadfast partner to her husband James (Ozzie) Osborne for 59 years, a nurturing mother to her children Mary, William with his wife Gina, Tommy, Marcy, and Melissa alongside her husband Derrik. She was a doting grandmother to Ashley with her husband Robert, Austin, Alayna, Nick with his wife Megan, William, Witten, and a great-grandmother to Jayden, Rilley, Olivia, Everly, Grayson, Ryder, and Serenity. Each of these precious lives was touched by Mary's boundless love and enduring spirit.Throughout her life, Mary worked with an unwavering commitment and dedication. She poured herself into every task, no matter how big or small, and always found time to volunteer, contributing to the betterment of her community. She was a woman of deep faith, who lived by the words of the Apostle Paul, "And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13). Mary embodied this divine love, sharing it generously with all who crossed her path.Mary's passions were simple yet profound. She found joy in the quiet moments spent over puzzles, the satisfaction of a seam well-sewn, and the laughter and stories shared during family gatherings. Shopping was another delight in her life, bringing her simple pleasures and the opportunity to choose thoughtful gifts for her loved ones.To describe Mary Osborne, one would say she was loving, faith-filled, and kind. Her heart knew no bounds, and her hands were rarely still, always busy with work for others or crafting comforts for her family. Her kindness was a gentle whisper in a world that often roars with uncertainty, a whisper that said, "Here is peace, here is love."In the tapestry of our lives, each thread Mary wove was intentional and full of purpose. Her legacy is one of unwavering love and the quiet strength of a woman whose faith was her guidepost. As we gather to remember her, we do so not with heavy hearts but with the joy of knowing that she lived a life as full and as beautiful as the blooming magnolias of a Texas spring.To have known Mary was to have known the embodiment of the Proverbs 31 woman, "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." Mary laughed often, loved deeply, and left us with memories that will forever be etched in the halls of our hearts.As we bid farewell to Mary Frances Osborne, let us carry forward the light she has left in each of us. May we honor her memory by living with the same kindness, the same generous spirit, and the same unwavering faith that she demonstrated every day of her blessed life.Today, we commend Mary to the Lord's loving embrace, confident that she is at peace in the eternal home prepared for her. We will miss her dearly, but we take solace in the knowledge that we are forever connected through the love she gave us, a love that knows no end. Amen.
