She was born on December 20, 1945 in Raleigh, Illinois, the daughter of Fay and Alma (Jones) Massey. Mary married Rudy Kight on November 20, 1976 and together they enjoyed forty-four years of marriage centered on their family before his passing on November 15, 2020.


Mary will be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was the happiest when she was able to support the grandchildren in their various sporting events and school activities.

In her free time, Mary enjoyed being outdoors, fishing with her husband and family. She was also a sports fan and enjoyed watching baseball, football and golf. Mary was a member of the Free Methodist Church and loved taking trips with her church family. She will be missed by her family and all who knew her.


Mary will be remembered by her son, Brandon Kight and wife Jill; grandchildren, Blake, Dirk, Asher, Claira, Judah and Finley Kight; two brothers, Ted Massey and Henry Massey; many loved cousins, nieces and nephews.


Mary was preceded in death by her parents; husband; brothers, Joe Massey and Jack Massey.
