Mary Evelyn "Memom" Goldsborough had the spirit of an angel. She loved her family and friends. Her true love was her husband, Jimmy. She cherished time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, especially when the stars would align and everyone could be there. She would always have tears of joy during those moments.
Mary loved music from ABBA, having parties, playing games, telling jokes and rhymes, the Cowboys, dancing, laughing, and Thanksgiving Day. She loved any time spent with the ones she loved. She enjoyed being involved in her community, including St. John's Church, where she attended mass daily. She loved the Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department community and sharing great times. She was the Social Coordinator for a number of years, as we all love hearing the crazy stories.
The family will receive friends on Monday, November 22, 2021 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM in St. John's Catholic Church, Hollywood, MD, with prayers recited at 7:00 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at 10:00 AM with Father Ray Schmidt officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Ryan Goldsborough, Jeff Hollyer, James Hollyer, Matt Dobson, Gavin Dobson, and Billy Joe Russell. Honorary pallbearers will be Chase Goldsborough, Mark Norris, and her granddaughters.
Mary's favorite color was blue. If any friends or family would like to wear blue on the day of the funeral, that would be great, but it is not required.
