Pansy Mayo Gross

She was born to the late Ezra and Audrey Mayo on April 24, 1925, in Pollard, Ark.
Pansy enjoyed living in the St. Louis area while pursuing her career, and retired as a secretary for the Department of Defense. Pansy and her husband, Omer, were very active in the Youth Ministry program at Parker Road Baptist Church in Florissant--and the youth became their special “kids”.

In addition to her parents, Pansy is preceded in death by her step mother, Zelma Duckworth Mayo; a brother, Lester Mayo; and her step-brothers, Dr. Hillard Duckworth and Carl Duckworth.
Pansy is survived by her brother, Bill Mayo of Piggott; and a step-sister, Josie Brandon of Missouri. She also leaves behind several beloved nieces and nephews.
A graveside service was held on Sunday, Dec. 13, at New Hope Cemetery at Pollard.
