December 27, 1941 - June 8, 2020
Mary Ann Asbell Griner, 78, went to her eternal home on June 8, 2020 after suffering from a sudden illness. Mary Ann was born in Trenton, Florida to parents Shelton and Ila Watson Asbell in 1941. She graduated from Chiefland High School in 1960. Mary Ann was a deeply religious, God-fearing woman who will be remembered for her out-going personality and love for life. One of her greatest pleasures was listening to and sharing God’s love with others through gospel music. Throughout her life and career she was well known for her compassion, family-centered approach, dedication to serving others, and her tender, kind-hearted ways. During her younger years, she worked as a waitress and childcare provider. She also served as a school bus driver and later, a school crossing guard for the Levy County School Board. Mary Ann enjoyed volunteering at The Hospice Care Center and Haven Hospice Attic in Chiefland, was a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church and loved all earthly creatures. She is preceded in death by her parents; her devoted husband, James Griner; and siblings Roselle Bublitz, L. M. Asbell, Enoch Asbell, Robert Asbell, Alene Colson, and James Duke Asbell. She is survived by her son Keith Williams (Lisa); step-daughters Renee Waldo and Carol Stanaland; grandchildren, Jennifer Morales Duncan (Scott), Kris Williams (Maleia Pamperin) and Stephanie Williams; great-grandchildren Gracelynn Duncan and Avery Williams; and her sisters, Jetty Ruth Blake and Carolyn Morgan (Charlie). Kim and Mary Ann were inseparable during their later years and while their deaths were a sudden reminder of life’s fragility, they will forever remain together in Heaven. A private, combined funeral service and interment for Mary Ann and Kim was held at the Asbell Family Cemetery on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 11:00 AM. The service was officiated by Pastor Greg Douglas, of whom Mary Ann had the greatest admiration for, and was a reflection of the incredible, godly lives they lived. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations of potted plants to be added to a memorial garden to honor the lives of Mary Ann and Kim.
