Obituary for Mary Ann Gainer
Ms. Mary Ann Gainer was born on April 20, 1976 in Metter, Georgia to Mr. Wallace Gainer and the late Mrs. Rebecca Smith Gainer. She attended the Candler County school system and was a member of the Metter High Class of 1996.
Mary Ann worked hard all of her life. As a little girl, one of her earliest jobs included picking up pecans and raking yards for neighbors. As she grew into adulthood, she continued to work hard so that she could be independent. Mary Ann worked at Claxton Poultry for a number of years, and later she worked Pleasant View Nursing Center. Her final place of employment was at Georgia Southern University, where she worked for over ten years as a Custodian I, until she became ill.
She accepted Christ into her life at an early age, and joined Jones Temple Baptist Church in Jenkins County, Georgia. Mary Ann was a member of the youth choir until she reached adulthood, and she enjoyed fishing, watching movies, listening to music and dancing. Mary Ann was preceded in death by her mother, Rebecca Smith Gainer.
