Mary was born in Liberal, Kan., on Sept. 27, 1926 to Maye Still Reid and Homer Reid. She is survived by her sister Barbara Reid Tritschler of Grand Junction, her brother Joseph Schadler of Dexter, Ore., and her two daughters Karen Fogg of Paonia and Diana Fogg Berry of Truth or Consequences, N.M.

After attending Western State College in Gunnison, she married David R. Fogg in 1945. Her second marriage was to Clyde F. Shultz in 1952 and together they enjoyed rock hunting and fishing. Mary’s path to the future was influenced by her experience of the Great Depression as a child. Her wise choice of a business career combined with a strong work ethic enabled her to achieve her lifetime goal long before she passed into a more gentle place on May 8 at Hope West Care Center, Grand Junction.

As per Mary’s request, no formal services will be held.

“The rocky trail between us is strewn with petals of love.”

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory.
