Mary A. Atchley, 68, of Phoenix, Ore., passed away Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at her home. She was born September 4, 1943 in Catron, Mo. to Horace and Lois Heffley.

Mary worked for Harry & David Corporation until she retired after 35 years. She was a great mother and wife; she had a great sense of humor, a great smile, was full of spunk, and was not afraid of anything. She loved fishing and spending time with her great-grandson.

Survivors include her husband of 49 years, James "David" Atchely Sr.; sons, James Jr. and Jerry Atchley; daughter, Vicki Merrill; granddaughters, Kimberly Biever, Brittany Merrill, Kylie and Tylynn Atchley; great-grandson, Zander Biever; and two brothers and two sisters.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Robert Atchley at two days old; two brothers and one sister.

We all love her and she will be greatly missed; she was taken from us way to soon.

A private celebration of life service will be held. Please log on to www.abbeyfuneralhome.com to sign condolences in her guestbook.
