Mary E. (Bovee) Souza passed away in her sleep in the morning hours of Nov. 25, 2018, at her home in Dickinson, N.D. after a brief illness. Mary was born in 1939 in San Luis Obispo to Fred and Lydia Bovee who had nine children that have all preceded her in death.
She attended San Luis Obispo schools and was homecoming queen at San Luis High where she met her husband Ron Souza. They made their home in Atascadero where they raised their four children, Ron Jr., Daniel, Tomm and Caryn.
Mary has eight grandchildren; Seth, Adrian, Kira, Kayla, Scott, Bryce, Shauni and Hannah as well as three great-grandchildren; Alexis, Kellan and Jaxon.
Mary's easy smile and generous spirit will be sorely missed by all the lives she touched.
Rest in Peace Mom, we love you very much.
