Mary Cay passed away November 26, 2019 at the IU Health Hospice House. She was born October 10, 1931 in Dayton, OH and was the daughter of Philip and Marguerete (Wells) Ochs. She graduated from Bath Township High School, Fairborn, OH in 1949 followed by a year at Miami Jacob’s Business College, Dayton, OH. She worked at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where she met her beloved husband Jim and were married September 14, 1958 in Fariborn, OH.
Because of Jim’s military career, from 1958-1972, they lived in Lybia, Germany, Turkey, Glendale, AZ and Sumter, SC. They ended up in Bloomington in the 1970’s. Mary Cay worked for several years for IU Women’s Athletic Department and Campus Food Services. She was a longtime member of Fairview United Methodist Church where she was a member of the choir and a circle group, and developed lifelong friendships.
Mary Cay was preceded in death by her parents and sister Judy Garrison. She is survived by brothers-in-law, Walt Garrison, York, SC and Philip Schumacher, El Mirage, AZ; sisters-in-law Pam Schumacher, Lincoln, NE and Sharon Schumacher, Sun City, AZ; several nieces and nephews; lifelong friends Margie and Wendell Bogner, Centennial, CO; surrogate son, Joe Boes of Bloomington whom she fondly referred to as her POA.
It took a village to care for Mary Cay upon Jim’s passing and want to thank Phyllis and Ron Frasier, Darlene Harbuck, Nancy Allerhand, and Christine & Allen DeForest for their timeless energy, love, and support. One of Mary Cay’s greatest passions was talking. She never met a stranger and could talk to friends for hours on the phone or in person. She could even talk to Alexa!
Visitation will be Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from Noon-2 p.m. with services following at 2 p.m. at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E. Third St. Bloomington. Rev. Curtis Hurley will officiate the service and entombment will follow at Valhalla Memory Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Fairview United Methodist Church.
