Mary Elizabeth Wasson, age 92, passed away on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas.  She was born on August 2, 1920 to Edward and Lois Gates in Decatur, Illinois.  She retired from Millikin University where she worked as a secretary in the music department.  She enjoyed reading, spending time with her family and the ocean.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Harold; cherished grandson, Michael Wasson, and her trusted dog, Dottie.
