Mrs. Mary G. Hurt, 91, passed away on December 7, 2021, at Trinity Assisted Living in Columbus. Mary was born on September 5, 1930, in Clay County, the daughter of the late Ira and Minnie Montgomery. Mary worked for Babcock and Wilcox in West Point for 15 years. Mary was always a hard worker. She was known for keeping everything really clean. She was proud of her yard.

She loved her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren, and they really loved their Mawmaw Hurt. She was a member of Hebron Baptist Church. She married George Hurt on August 28, 1971, in West Point, and he predeceased her on May 19, 1995.
