Mary Hurn Uddin 6 January 1929 4 October 2019

Daughter of Jay and Lillian Hurn of Randolph County died Friday in Pocahontas from respiratory failure. Age 90.

She is survived by her husband, Khawaja Rashid UDDIN, and two nephews, Thomas J. and John W. FISHER and family.

My beloved Mary was a devoted wife first and foremost. Admired by many and loved by all, she was an individual enamored by life. She stood by her convictions with an indomitable spirit that inspired all.

Born the year of the Great Depression she lived a modest life and rose to prominence as Tiger Mary— whom I love with all my heart.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Vesta Fisher.

A documentary film is in production about her life.

Visitation will be Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 1 - 2 p.m., with the funeral immediately following at 2 p.m., at McNabb Funeral Home Chapel.  Burial will follow in Spikes Cemetery.
