Mrs. Mary Maude Porter passed away Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at her home in Statesboro, Georgia under the care of Regency SouthernCare Hospice. Born in Bulloch County on September 30, 1935 to Willard and Annie Newsome Gwinnette, Mrs. Porter spent some time in Garden City, Georgia before moving back to Bulloch County in 1991.
Mary always liked being outdoors. She enjoyed gardening and working in her yards. However, when the work was finished, she just enjoyed the sun, whether at home or at the beach, resulting in Mary always having a gorgeous tan.
But the thing that Mary loved the most was family. She was a wonderful mother and friend.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband of 29 years Arthur Porter and her parents, Willard and Annie Gwinnette.
Her life will be forever cherished by her surviving daughters, Lisa Porter and Vicky Porter and her sister, Margie Chance of Forest Park, Georgia.
A private graveside service and burial will be held on Friday at Little Ogeechee Baptist Church Cemetery.
