Mary Helen Ryan, neé Yates of Lubbock, Texas, was called to her Lord in Heaven and her Prince Charming, Frederick Ryan on October 26th, 2018.
In life, she loved vibrantly, holding her family, friends, and John Wayne close to her heart in equal measure. She passed her time in the company of those she loved most, as well as watercoloring, piecing together puzzles, and traveling to historic sites. A passionate storyteller, she shared her family history and photographs with her family at every chance she could.
She lives on through her four children, nine grandchildren, and one soon-to-be great-grandson, as well as countless friends whose lives she warmed. She will be missed by all.
A memorial service will be held at 11am on November 17, at Grove Avenue Baptist Church, 8701 Ridge Rd., Henrico VA 23229.
