Mary Etta Masters



Mary Etta Morgan Masters, 82, a lifelong resident of Crothersville, passed away at 1:13 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, at Scott Memorial Hospital in Scottsburg.

Born March 27, 1933, in Jackson County, she was the daughter of Robert Edward Morgan and Cordia Marie Morgan Morgan, both of whom preceded her in death. On April 23, 1955, in Dupont, she married Cephas J. “CJ” Masters, who survives in Crothersville.

Mary was a member of Crothersville United Methodist Church, enjoyed baking and cooking — which she was quite talented at — and going to dirt track races with her family. Mary loved her family immensely, as they in return loved her for being such a dedicated and wonderful wife, mom and grandma. Mary retired from the U.S. Shoe Corp. after 20 years of service and Best Western in Seymour after being a devoted employee for 15 years.

Other survivors include two sons, Justin “Keith” (Cindy) Masters and Adrian Ray “Tader” (Jerilyn) Masters, all of Crothersville; four grandchildren, Jonathon Ray (Ashley) Masters of Indianapolis, Jeremy Keith Masters of Lexington, Kentucky, Jacob Kent “Jake” Masters of Crothersville and Katherine Marie “Katie” Masters of Crothersville; two great-grandchildren, Aiden Keith Masters of Richmond, Kentucky, and Arianna Raye Masters of Indianapolis; and three sisters, Anna Marie Terrell of Joplin, Missouri, and Bobbie Ellen (RC) Seal, and Bonnie Lou Masters, both of Crothersville.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Norma June Smith.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at Adams Funeral Home and Crematory in Crothersville with the Rev. David Schill and the Rev. Mark Wooten officiating. Burial will be at Crothersville Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 3 to 8 p.m. today and from 11 a.m. until time of service Sunday.
