Mary Edda Duff

Mary Edda Duff, 75, a beloved homemaker passed away on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at Liberty Dayton Regional Hospital in Liberty, Texas surrounded by her loving family. Born on July 9, 1948, in Liberty, Texas to the late Hersel Howell Bagwell and Virgie May Johnson. Mary lived a remarkable life filled with love and devotion for her family and friends. Mary “Mother Hen” of her family will forever be remembered for her Christian faith as well as being an avid homemaker who took great pride and love in creating a warm and welcoming environment for her family, friends, and neighbors. She and her husband helped build and grow the foundation of South Liberty Pentecostal Church where she was a dedicated member. Mary embraced life fully and found joy in being a jokester, telling funny stories and hearing her contagious laugh throughout her home. Having a family bond has held a special place in Mary’s heart, always keeping her family together. Her dedication to serving others extended beyond the walls of the church by always praying for others, often known as a prayer warrior. After marrying the love of her life, Billy Duff, Sr. they embarked on a journey together that spanned an impressive 59 years. During this time, they built a strong foundation of love and support that served as an inspiration to all those around them. Mary will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Mary was preceded in death by her beloved parents, brothers, Clayton Bagwell and Hershel Bagwell, sisters, Gloria Hall, Paulette Goodwin, Martha Duff, and Delilah Norris. She is now joyously reunited with them in the Kingdom of Heaven.
