Mary Davis Baskerville

February 26, 1935 ~ July 4, 2019 (age 84)


Ms. Mary J. Baskerville was born February 26, 1935 in Sumter County, South Carolina.  She was the beloved daughter of the Late Loman and Sarah Dyson.  On July 4, 2019, Mrs. Mary J. Baskerville departed her earthly journey at National Healthcare Parklane (NHC).  We want to thank NHC for their love and care while she resided there.

Mary was a faithful member of Brooklyn Temple SDA Church in Brooklyn, NY.  She became interested in teaching the children in Cradle Roll and fell in love with it.  She relocated with her family from Brooklyn, NY to Columbia, SC and continued to teach the Cradle Roll class until she was not able to attend church any longer.  Mary devotedly participated in the Deaconess Ministry and taught the Cradle Roll Sabbath School for over 30+ years.  Mary was known for her coconut pies, biscuits and her “WISDOM”.

Mary J. Baskerville loved her family.  Her commitment to her husband of fifty (50) years is a testimony to her marriage vows and the beliefs she held regarding the family unit.

Memories will be cherished by her husband, Ronald Baskerville; daughter, Rhonda (Michael) McBride; daughter, Tori Ellis; son, Kevin Baskerville; granddaughter, Vanessa (Robert) White; great-grandboys, Ronald White, Malachi White, Mathias White and Micah Smith; Aunts, Katherine Williams and Lessie China and a host of cousins and friends.
