Mary A Sons

January 8, 1946 ~ January 9, 2017 (age 71)

Watson-North is deeply honored to be of service and ministry to the family of Mary Ann Griffin Sons, age 71 of Tullahoma.  Mrs. Sons passed away Monday January 9, 2017 at Tennova Harton Healthcare.  A native of Moore County, she had made her home in Tullahoma with her husband for most of life.  She enjoyed listening to gospel music and watching cooking shows.  She was an avid fan of soap operas, General Hospital in particular, having followed the program for more than twenty years.  She was a very devoted grandmother and was adored by all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be remembered and admired as a perfectionist and a professional in every aspect of her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Lifecare in Tullahoma. She semi-retired following 17 years of dedicated service and then practiced as a private duty nurse until her health required her to retire from the profession to which she was “called” and loved so passionately.  Mrs. Sons is preceded in death by her mother, Wanda Lee Daniel Griffin and her father, Ples Hugh Griffin.  Also preceding her in death are sisters, Carolyn Weddington and Jo Ann Elliott; brothers, Robert Lee Griffin and Don Thomas Griffin.  She leaves to cherish her memory and mourn her passing, her loving husband of 55 years, Gene Sons; daughters, Melissa Tyler of Tullahoma, Angela Rena (Mark) Partin of Estill Springs and Candy Michelle (Terry) Clark of Tullahoma; son, Floyd Eugene (Betty) Sons of Lynchburg; 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren; sisters, Hazel (Wayne) Parker of Winchester Springs, Linda Martin of Tullahoma, Cathy Anthony of Winchester, Paulette James and Wanda Honea, both of Tullahoma; brother Ken (Christy) Griffin of Decherd.  The family will receive friends at Watson-North Funeral Home Thursday January 12, 2017 from 5-8 p.m.   A celebration of the life of Mary A. Sons will be conducted from the Roy B. Watson Chapel of Watson-North Funeral Home at 11 a.m. Friday January 13, 2017.  Interment will follow at Watson-North Memorial Park with grandsons serving as pallbearers.  Online condolences may be sent to
