Obituary of Mary Follett

Mary Lee Nutt Follett, 62, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday November 21st, 2018 at Baylor, Scott&White Hospital in Grapevine, TX.  She passed away surrounded by her loving family.  She was born March 22nd,1956 in Fort Worth, TX to Jesse Hollis Nutt and Angie Lee Patterson Nutt. As a child she loved going to the farm with her Daddy, playing outside, and being the neighborhood tomboy. She was a 1974 graduate of Arlington High School and she married John Follett on June 4th, 1976 in Arlington,TX.  Mary was a proud Texan and after temporarily relocating to Tulsa,OK, while supporting John's career, they returned to "God's Country"(Texas) to settle in North Richland Hills,TX. Mary dedicated her life to raising her two sons, Steven and Gary Follett and later in life demonstrated her passion for helping others by working in administrative roles supporting the medical field.  Mary lived her life to the fullest, which for her meant enjoying family camping trips all over Texas, cheering on her sons at football and baseball games, spending time baking with her "daughters-in-love(law),"Laura and Stacy, and being the world's best Nana to her grandchildren, "Awesome" Austin and “Miss Addy "Addison. Mary enjoyed the simple pleasures in life such as lunch dates with former colleagues and friends, researching genealogy, reaching out to distant family members and quietly strengthening her faith in the Lord at home. She had an uncanny ability to develop and maintain deep and positive relationships. Mary went by many names...Mom, Nana, and Mimi to those that loved her. She fiercely loved her family, which she demonstrated by a life of servitude and selflessness. She also loved the Lord with all her heart and now rests for eternity in her heavenly home. Mary is survived by her husband, John Follett; sons, Steven and Gary Follett; daughters-in-law, Laura Patchett Follett and Stacy Anger Follett; grandchildren, Austin and Addison Follett;  sisters, Pamela Lynn Hale and husband Mark, Holly Daugharty and husband Leland; brother-in-law Jim, Follett and wife Kathy; sister-in-law, Sue Caldwell and husband Mark; very special cousin, Cheryl Moore; and many other nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
