Mae Marie Cantrell

November 9, 1937 — August 25, 2020

It is with profound sadness and deep love that the family of Marie Cantrell announce her passing on August 25, 2020 at the age of 82.

Marie was born in Wilmington, Kansas on November 9, 1937 to Walter and Iva Reed.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 51 years, Jimmy Van Cantrell, her parents, Walter and Iva and her two sweet granddaughters, Stacy Rene Cantrell and Kaycee Elizabeth Williams.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Jan Marie Holmes, Jill Rene Ferguson, Paul Joseph Cantrell, Mark Edward Cantrell, Kent C. Cantrell and Julie Rhea Williams.  She will also by dearly missed by 16 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, her brother, Jim, sisters; Joan, Dorothy, Donna and Laura and many more that loved her.

Mom was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and the Wilmington Church of Christ held a special place in her heart.  She enjoyed crafting, playing card games with family and friends and taking family vacations.  Most of all she loved her family and her door was always open.  She loved when people stopped by for coffee and took such joy in spending time with friends.  Mom's house was always the place where everyone gathered and she wouldn't have had it any other way.

Please join us in celebrating her life at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at the Wilmington Church of Christ.  There will be a reception immediately following at the Harveyville Community Center.  Flowers may be sent to VanArsdale Funeral Chapel, 501 E. 3rd, Eskridge, Kansas 66423.
