Mary H. Dameron, nee Gorman, 77, of Jerseyville, IL, formerly of Collinsville, IL, born Nov. 9, 1940 in Collinsville passed away Nov. 10, 2017 in Jerseyville.

Mary was married to her high school sweetheart, Gary W. Dameron, for 54 years. Their life together took them from their hometown of Collinsville, IL to Springfield, IL twice, to Cincinnati, OH, to Waterloo, IL, and back home to Collinsville. She worked as a legal secretary for many years in Collinsville and retired to be a mom and homemaker to her husband and two children. While Mary retired early, she enjoyed traveling for many years with the love of her life, Gary.

Mary enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Mary might have been small in stature but was big on personality. She enjoyed bowling, singing, and playing the piano in the choir. She was an advocate for animals and frequently donated too many animal causes.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 54 years, Gary W. Dameron; and her parents, Lawrence R. and Hallie M., nee Allmon, Gorman.

She is survived by a son, Gary (Susan) Dameron; a daughter, Dana Buck; a granddaughter, Erin Buck; a sister, Nancy "Dee" (Kenny) Wachter; as well as many beloved nieces and nephew.
