With sadness, love, and profound gratitude, the family of Mary Lee Warren Burright announces her passing on July 17, 2021 at Memorial Central Hospital.
Mary was born July 2, 1950 in St. Louis, MO to Lonnie Warren and Grace Appelt Warren. After graduating high school and being a hippie during the Vietnam War, Mary moved to Colorado, where she got a job working for famous sculptor Michael Garman. Mary married Gregory Lyn Burright on April 24th, 1988. A year and a half later the couple were blessed with a child, Shea. Mary nurtured her by home schooling through 7th grade, and taking her on many adventures. She spent that time repairing sculptures and later returned to her career of painting and sculpting for Michael Garman, whom she retired from last year. She made many pieces that were gifted to celebrities and presidents. She was known for her years of leading her church's choir and praise team. In November 2016 she became a grandmother, one of her greatest joys.
She was survived by her husband, daughter, and granddaughter Ember, by her sister Marcie Warren Cockrell, her son in law Christopher Brooks and numerous sibling in laws and nieces and nephews, Rebecca Burright, Timothy Burright, and wife Phyllis and children, Gwendolyn Burright Winter and husband Norman and children, Pricilla Burright Huenink and children, Philip Burright and wife Elizabeth and children, and Jill Burright Patterson and Husband Todd and child.
A celebration of Mary's life and the love her family has for her is planned for July 24th, 2021 at 11am at the Grace Brethren Church.
