Mary Katherine Brower
May 19, 1947 - April 21, 2023

Mary Katherine Brower, 75, of Wilmington, North Carolina, passed away on April 21, 2023.  She was born on May 19, 1947, in Charleston, West Virginia, to Frances and Samuel V. Fridley.

Mary was a retired high school cafeteria manager.  However, her most important role was being a mother.  She was the most loving and kind person you would have met.  Mary was a mom before anything else and always put her family first.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband John McWhirter (1978-1994), husband Tommy Brower (1195-2015), her mother Frances Fridley, father Samuel V. Fridley, and son Samuel A. Fridley.

She is survived by her daughter Sherrie Dickerson, sister Kay Cox, grandchildren Ashley Fridley, Shane McWhirter, John Dickerson, and Haley Dickerson, as well as great-grandchildren Steeler Wade, Penelope, John Jr., Hayley, Joffrey, and little Jack.

Mary was a beautiful soul and loved everyone no matter the wrongs they made. She may have been small, but she was mighty.  Her family and friends will always remember her as the strongest person to walk the earth.
