January 18, 1929 - May 11, 2019
Mary Olive Alfrejd, 90, passed away in North Dallas on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
Born in Terre Haute, Indiana on January 18, 1929, Mary lived in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Louisiana and Southern California before moving to the Dallas area in 1980. She began a successful Real Estate career in the 1970’s in Terre Haute and was frequently honored for setting sales records there before moving to Texas and becoming one of the top producing Real Estate agents in Plano for Remax and later Ebby Halliday.
Mary enjoyed spending time at the beach, (particularly the Pacific Ocean) playing Bridge and spending time with her family. After retiring from Real Estate, she lived in McKinney, Texas for a short time before settling in Plano, where she lived with her son, Jim. For health reasons, she spent the last few months of her life in an Assisted Living private home.
Survivors include her children, son Jim Hurt of Plano, Texas, daughter Debby Jones of Galveston, Texas and daughter Tami Coffey, of McKinney, Texas. Surviving siblings include Jane Hurt and Bill Mann of The Villages, Florida and Ruth Griffin of Bloomington, IL. She was preceded in death by brother Kenny Mann.
Surviving grandchildren include Clint and Julie Jones, Jennifer Snyder, Mary and Andrew Newberry, Sarah Hudson, Rachel and Jeff Henderson, Jacob Hurt, Lily Hurt, Michael Snyder and eleven great grandchildren.
Mary was a great Mother, Nana, Aunt Mary and Friend to many. The Family will be gathering for a “Celebration of Life” event, to be announced in the near future. We welcome your remembrances of her in the space provided below.
