Mary France Cannaday, 98, of Ferrum went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 29, 2017. Mary was a devoted wife and mother who loved providing for her family.

Surviving is her grandson, Lynwood T. Cannaday, Jr. of Ferrum; her step-grand- daughter, Theresa L. Bailey of Rocky Mount; her step-great- granddaughter, Jessica Foy of Wirtz; and all of Mary’s nieces and nephews. Special thanks to her caregiver Sally Martin and all those who knew and loved Mary.
