Mary was born in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, to George W. and Genevieve (Chevallier) Noffsinger April 16, 1936. She attended St. Jude Catholic school in Havre, MT, and graduated from Havre Central High School. She soon married into the Air Force and was stationed in Germany and various states in the U.S. over the years. She settled in Brandon, FL, when her oldest son was stationed at MacDill AFB. While in Brandon, she started and ran Mary's Little Angels Daycare for many years which she loved. After which, she became a CNA and cared for the other end of the age spectrum! Which she loved also! Finally, she retired young at 78.
Mary was very active at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Brandon, delivering communion to the sick, driving a van to take people to church and was a Rosminian Ascribed. In addition, Mary was a Salesian Cooperator at the Mary Help of Christians Center in Tampa, assisting with various projects and having fun with her friends and co-workers there.
Also, Mary loved to garden, and her yard was rife with a wide variety of all of the plant life that a Florida climate will support. Weeding, planting, raking, pushing her lawn mower, etc. were all her idea of fun. Oddly, cleaning anything in sight was her idea of a good time, too.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, George and Genevieve Noffsinger, and her brothers, James and George Noffsinger.
Mary is survived by her sister, Helen Clark of Whitefish, MT; sons, George Little of Brandon and Rick Little of Key Biscayne; daughter, Jennifer Kunkler of Pensacola; and many grandchildren and great grandchildren, all of whom provided her with a great deal of joy.
Those who wish to do so may send flowers to St. Francis or we suggest that memorials be given to the St. Francis Parish or the Mary Help of Christians Center.
