Mary Alice Roney, age 87, of 787 Steele Road, Vienna, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.
Born in Macon, she was the daughter of the late Gibson Lewis Butler and Jewel Forehand Butler. To know this lady was to love her. She was an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her happiest moments were when her loud and rambunctious family would gather together. She always commented on how blessed she was to have lived to not only see her four children grow up, but also her eleven grandchildren and the birth of her eleven great grandchildren. Her love for her family was only preceded by her love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was definitely the prayer warrior of the family and will be sorely missed by all who loved her. She was faithful member of Midway Independent Methodist Church and had taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She was also a former member of the Lilly Woman's Club.
