Tom Stribling, pastor of First United Methodist Church of Happy, and Craig Albracht, campus pastor of Hillside Christian Church in Amarillo, officiating.

Mary was born August 21, 1951 in Pampa to Henry and Lucy Johnston.  She graduated from Mobeetie High School in 1969 and went to attend West Texas State University.  On January 29, 1971 she married John Alvin Chesher in Mobeetie and they celebrated 48 years of marriage.  Through the years Mary worked at Frank’s Thriftway, tax office, and cleaned houses with Darlene Asencio. She was a member of the Wayside Club for over 30 years, Home Extension Club for 10 years, and played Bunco for 15 years.  Mary was a faithful member of First Christian Church/Hillside Christian Church for over 40 years.  When Mary wasn’t watching her grandchildren play sports and other activities, which she truly loved, she would spend her time doing hobbies such as ceramics, crocheting, knitting, and playing the piano.  Mary and John loved to go camping in the mountains and riding motorcycles. She was a supporter of the HVFD for 27 years while her husband was a volunteer. Her dog, Abby, had a special place in her heart.  Mary was the best “Mimi” to her seven grandchildren, and she loved her family and friends and she will be missed by so many.  She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Larry Johnston.

Survivors include her husband, John Chesher of the home; a daughter, Tammy Stevens and husband Jeff of Pampa; a son, Kevin Chesher and wife Julie of Pampa; 7 grandchildren, Johnathan Stevens, Nick Stevens, Kaylee Chesher, Andrew Stevens, Kamryn Chesher, Karmen Chesher and Gracie Stevens all of Pampa; 2 sisters-in-law, Connie Hunter and husband Doyle of Hot Springs, AR, and Kimberly Morgan and husband Jimmy of Wheeler; 5 nieces, Shawn Wilson and husband Tom of Wylie, Krista Carver and husband Grant of Lewisville, Shelly Keys and husband Jared of Wheeler, Erika Francis and husband Jacob of Canyon, and Keadron Pearson and husband Cole of Scott City, KS; a nephew, Jay Hunter and wife Ronda of Gravette, AR; and many extended family and friends.
