Mary Elizabeth Wasson

Mary Elizabeth Wasson, 92, died Wednesday, March 27, 2013, in Fort Worth.

There will be a private family service at a later date.

She was born Aug. 2, 1920, to Edward and Lois Gates in Decatur, Ill. She retired from Millikin University where she worked as a secretary in the music department. She enjoyed reading, spending time with her family and the ocean.
