Mary Jo Lacey, 66, of Tomball, Texas, formerly of Dresden, Ohio passed away Tuesday morning, September 10, 2013 at her home in Texas.
Born February 22, 1947 in Dresden, Ohio she was a daughter of the late George W. and Grace B. (Swope) Davis and was a 1965 graduate of Dresden Jefferson High School. She had worked as a bookkeeper in the real estate and finance business for many years.
Mary Jo was the devoted wife of Paul D. Lacey, also formerly of Dresden, whom she married September 17, 1966, and the mother of Christina Marie Ibrahim of League City, Texas and Jennifer Lacey Eckstrom of Katy, Texas. She loved nothing more than her grandchildren Kaela Zane, Kara Marie and Mason Davis Ibrahim and Mary Elsie, Paul Edward, Jon Eric, and step-granddaughter Brittany Lynne Eckstrom. Also surviving is her half sister, Shirley Pape of Dresden and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents Mary Jo was preceded in death by a brother Michael Davis; a half brother, Jack Davis and a half sister, Jeannette Meadows.
Mary Jo attended the Prince of Peace Church in Cypress, Texas. She loved horses, Elvis and Mustangs, not necessarily in that order. She loved, respected and thoroughly enjoyed topical discussions with her son-in-laws Mo and Ed. Mary Jo had previously resided in Vienna, Virginia, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Falls Church, Virginia. She traveled the world with her daughters and husband seeing places like China, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, Europe, and of course, Hawaii. She made friends wherever she went, including a terrific group of friends in Texas. She was a wonderful cook, an avid reader and a great conversationalist. She was a terrific role model and inspiration to many, especially her children and grandchildren.
Calling hours will be 5pm to 8pm Monday, September 16, 2013 at the Dresden Chapel of Vensil & Chute Funeral Home, 714 Main Street. Christian wake services will be conducted following calling hours.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:00am Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at St. Ann Catholic Church in Dresden with the Rev. Father Don Franks as celebrant. Burial will be in Dresden Cemetery.
