Mary Veal Stipe entered into eternal rest on June 6, 2024 at the age of 91. She was born on October 4, 1932, to the union of Sarah Dennis and Howard Veal in Batchelor, Louisiana. Mary is one of seven children, to which she is the eldest. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Leroy Veal, Howard Veal Jr., Ophelia Veal, Clarence Veal and her son Gulliers “Garry” Stipe.

Mary retired as a Rehabilitation Counselor at the Veterans Administrative Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Throughout her career she was very instrumental in promoting serenity and well-being not only to her patients, but to the many life-long friends she made along the way. 

Mary’s final years were spent in Houston, Texas at the Fall Creek Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center. She made many new friends, enjoyed arts and crafts, playing bingo, crossword puzzles, attending outings, enjoyed keeping up with the latest news and watching the New Orleans Saints football games. She will be greatly missed by those who love and adore her.
