OBITUARY - MARA LEA (SCOTT) HETHERINGTON

Mara Lea (SCOTT) HETHERINGTON, 83, of Grandview, MO, passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by family members September 5, 2005 at Life Care Center of Grandview. A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m., Saturday September 17, at Mission Road Community of Christ Church, 7842 Mission Road, Prairie Village, KS. At her request, Mara Lea's body has been donated to Kansas University Medical Center in the interest of medical research.

Mara Lea was born April 7, 1922, in Kellerton, Iowa to parents Rothmer and Ruth (JOY) SCOTT. She graduated from Lamoni High School in 1939 and attended Graceland College. Mara Lea married Willard "Scott" HETHERINGTON January 25, 1942 in Burlington, Iowa.

After Scott's tour of duty in the U.S. Navy following WWII, he and Mara Lea moved to Lamoni, IA. They were associated with Mara Lea's father and brother, Edward, in the Coffee Shoppe from 1945 to 1960. From 1972 to 1981, their family owned and operated the Wagon Wheel Restaurant in Lamoni.

Mara Lea was baptized into the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1935. From 1960 to 1970 the HETHERINGTON family lived in Florida. During that time church services were held in their home, gradually enlarging to the Gainesville and Ocala congregations.

Mara Lea loved playing bridge, visiting with her family, reading mystery novels, watching TV, and eating hot fudge sundaes without the nuts.

Mara Lea was preceded in death by her husband Scott (1988), father Rothmer (1955), stepfather, Archie REW (1991), mother Ruth (1983), and brothers Edward (1976), John (1942), and Paul (1939).
