  • January 1929 ~ February 2013
    Mary was born the third of eight Lull children in her beloved Rogue Valley and graduated from Central Point High School in 1947. Married to Robert McDonald, of Eagle Point, Oregon, she lived in Pullman and Puyallup, Wash., and Turlock, Calif. before they established the family farm in Hughson, Calif. where she lived for 44 years.
    Raised in a granite pit on a forested hill, she never lost her love of mountains, rocks, growing and flowering things, and her family.
    Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Robert McDonald, DVM; her parents, Lucius and Helen Lull; brothers, Lucius and Robert; and sisters, Dorothy, Phoebe, and Patricia. She is survived by daughter, Phoebe (Brian) Arakelian, of Turlock; son, Brian McDonald, of Seattle, Wash.; granddaughters, Lydia and Stephanie Arakelian; brother, Wilburt Lull; and sister, Louise Lull.
