Beloved Members of St. Martin’s,
You are invited to remember and celebrate the life of Mary Mathai, our devoted parishioner, friend, and longtime member of St. Martin’s parish. Mary passed away peacefully on January 3, 2022 surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by her three children, Rina, Mathew, and Koshy; as well as her four grandchildren, Susan, Jay, Alexander, and Andrew.
As a woman of faith, Mary was active in the church. She was a member of the Flower Guild and Bible Study at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Bethesda, Maryland, and in Bible Study, Book Club, and the Mary and Martha group at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Ellisville, Missouri. She served the community through organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Bethesda Help, and a Crisis Hotline. She was widely traveled, loved reading and wordplay, and was a supporter of the arts, a legendary cook, and accomplished in Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement.
The service will be held on
