Mary Vida Lott made the journey to heaven on January 6, 2021, at the age of 77, where she was welcomed warmly by her Husband, Joel Lott, her Grandson Dylan Douglas Townsend, and her Son-In-Law, David DiVirgilio.

Mary is lovingly remembered by her children, Deborah DiVirgilio, Doug (& Nichole) Parrish and Mike (& Angie) Bidwell, as well as her grandchildren, Kristin Priscilla Bearce, Meagan Beth Gibson, Jordan Leigh (& Robert) Irey, Brittany Nicole (& James) Albrecht, Autumn Nichole Parrish, and Madison Christine Bidwell.

Mary was born in Albion, Michigan on January 28, 1944, growing up in Homer, Michigan. She graduated from Homer High School where a majority of her classmates became life-long friends. Over the years they would have many get togethers, along with conversing for hours over the phone. Their continued friendship meant everything to her. But the majority of her life was spent living in Florida where she worked as an Insurance Adjuster and spent her lunch periods watching All My Children. Her weekends were spent enjoying time with her grandchildren – spoiling them beyond belief. Along with shopping and looking for good sales.

The memorial for Mary will be scheduled at a later date in Bushnell, Florida where she will be buried at the Florida National Cemetery with her husband. This information will be provided by her daughter to family and friends so they may attend.

Condolences may be sent to the family at Gentry-Morrison Funeral Homes.
