Mary Catheryn Ferguson, 87, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 14th, 2021. She entered the realm of glory surrounded by the love of her family and her husband of 68 years.
Mary Catheryn was born February 27th, 1934 at her family home in Bedford, Pennsylvania, to the late Nellie and John Miller, and step-father, the late Phillip Miller. She was the middle of three daughters, the late Anna Mae (Miller) Caudle and Francis Marie (Miller) Cessna.
On October 4th, 1952, Mary Catheryn married her high school sweetheart, William “Bill” Ferguson. Their love grew along with their family as they welcomed four children, Barbara (Ferguson) Schmuck, Jeffrey Ferguson, Sheri (Ferguson) Cione and William “Cannon” Ferguson.
Together they made their life’s work serving the Kingdom of God, pastoring Maranatha Assembly of God in Grantsville, Maryland and later Trinity Assembly of God in Lanham, Maryland. Mary Catheryn also had a passion for nursing, completing nursing school and worked as an L.P.N. at Sacred Heart Hospital in Cumberland, Maryland for several years.
