Our Mom, Mary Evenelle Thomas Denmark, born November 5,1925 in Bell, Florida, was a true servant of the Lord an angel to us and many others. She crossed the River Jordan into the waiting arms of her Lord and Savior, June 22, 2018. Greeting her are her husband Daniel “Jack”, her parents Lina Lindsey and John Lawton Thomas, brothers John R, A.L., Horace, Elvoy, and Otto, sisters Doris Waller and Oveda Harrington and son-in law John Schnauss.
Mom graduated from Bell High School in 1943 and worked for over 30 years as a school crossing guard caring about each child she helped. She was active in Sunday School and Church, singing in the choir and teaching four and five year olds for over 60 years, loving each child as her own. Mom never stopped witnessing to people even as Alzheimer’s was taking her memory. She would sing all the songs we learned as children in Sunday School and pray the most beautiful prayers.
Our loving mother and grandmother is survived by her children Jeanette Denmark Schnauss, Thomas Edwin “Tommy” Denmark (Sue), grandchildren Aimee Denmark Evans (Tim), Janet Michelle “Jan” Schnauss, Rachelle Rhea “Chel” Denmark (Angie), and John Roy Schnauss (Laney), her great- grand children Phillip Thomas Denmark (Tabitha), Skylar Tempestt Evans, Jonathan Dalton and Christopher Dillon Sweat, Sarah Elizabeth and William Griffin Schnauss, her great great grandson Daniel Thomas Denmark, and many nieces and nephews that were dearly loved.
