Mary Varner

October 7, 1923 — September 28, 2021

Mary Lee (Cayton) Varner, 97, of Monterey passed Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at Alleghany Health and Rehab in Clifton Forge.

She was born October 7, 1923 in Moyers, WV., a daughter of the late William Frank and Betty (Moats) Cayton. On May 26, 1947 she married Russell Benjamin Varner, who preceded her in death on February 18, 2000. They were members of Monterey United Methodist Church.

Mary worked at Aileen, Inc. for many years and later as a cafeteria and janitorial aid with Highland County Public Schools. She was well known for her sewing skills and her delicious hickory nut cake. Mary was particularly fond of cutting her grass, tending her garden, needlework, and splitting wood. Above all, her greatest joy was spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a sister, Leta Niswander; brothers, William “Bill” and Gene Cayton; and son-in-law, Edison McDaniel.

Mary is survived by her three children, Linda McDaniel of Monterey, Sandra Andre and husband, Gerald of Irwin, Pa., and Edward Varner and his wife, Elizabeth of Stuart Draft; six grandchildren, Billy McDaniel and wife, Latisha, Eric McDaniel and wife, Jennifer, Casey Andre, Kalissa Andre, Russell Varner and Wendy Nelson; as well as five great-grandchildren, Breanna Judy, Skylar McDaniel, Michael McDaniel, Emily McDaniel and Victoria Harman.

A funeral service will be held 3 p.m., Saturday, October 2, 2021 at Obaugh Funeral Home with Rev. Andre Crummett officiating. Interment will follow in Blue Grass Cemetery.

Active pallbearers will be Billy, Eric and Michael McDaniel, Russell Varner, Gerald and Casey Andre.

The family will receive friends 6-8 p.m., Friday, October 1, 2021 at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers the family suggest memorial contributions be made to Blue Grass Cemetery, 3042 Blue Grass Valley Road, Blue Grass, Va. 24413.
