Mary Ann Jamerson Bridges, 77, passed away on Monday, February 14, 2022 at her home in Amory. She was born on May 22, 1944 in Fulton to Troy Dewayne and Dorothy Oleta Owens Jamerson. She graduated from IAHS in 1962 and prior to her retirement, she worked for Lift, Inc. as a social worker. She married Richard Bridges on January 4, 1964. A member of Faith Baptist Church, she loved serving Jesus and caring for others through Meals on Wheels. Gardening brought her joy, but nothing put a smile on her face like bragging on her grandchildren, Jake, Brett, Caroline, and Anna Clark. She never met an animal she didn’t feed, and she never missed a chance to laugh with her boys. Her selfless acts of love blessed the lives of her family and countless friends over the years and no one ever left her house hungry or without a hug.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at Cleveland-Moffett Funeral Home in Amory with Bro. Harvey Coplin and Bro. Chuck Moffett officiating. Burial will follow in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery near Fulton.
