Mary Frances Goliver

October 19, 1933 — July 26, 2021

Mary Frances Goliver,
87, of Monrovia, passed away peacefully on July 26, 2021. Mary was born October 19, 1933 in Laporte, Indiana.

As a widowed mother of young children, Mary was a deeply devoted single parent who always put her family first. After family dinners, you could usually find Mary napping on the couch with a grand/great grandchild on her lap. She also enjoyed attending her grandchildren's concerts. Mary loved animals and bird watching, especially hummingbirds. Her favorite activities were horseback riding, sewing, listening to music, and watching TV. She had a huge heart and was always quick to offer help. Mary was always very independent, hard working, and on the move.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband, William E. Goliver.

She survived by her children, Lena Wise (Shawn), William E. Goliver, Jr. (Dawn), and Thomas Goliver; grandchildren, Gavin Wise, Collin Wise, and Julie Deaton (Tim); great-grandchildren, Sean, JJ, Braven, and Ellie.

A private celebration of Mary's life will take place at a later date.
