Marie Osborne Herbert passed away on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020 at the age of 79.  Marie was born in the Clovercroft Community of Williamson County to the late Robert Ewing and Virginia Hartley Osborne. 

She was the beloved wife of Wilson “Shac” Herbert, Jr., and cherished mother to three sons, Peter (Teresa) Herbert, Joey (Judy) Herbert and Shad (Carrie) Herbert.  She was fondly called and “Mammy” and is survived by her six grandchildren, Zach (Shelby) Herbert, Nicki (Eugene) Davis, Luke Herbert, Houston Herbert, Emalyn Herbert and Ava Herbert; one great-grandchild, Nova Donev; and beloved pet, Bailey.

Preceded in death by brothers and sisters, Robert Osborne, John Osborne, Jean Davis, Virginia Dodd and Dorothy Mitchell. 

One never needed to ask where you stood with Marie, because she was never shy about letting anyone know her feelings.  Marie loved caring for all living things, particularly those in need.  She had a beautiful garden and loved animals.  But most of all, she loved her husband, her boys, and her grandchildren.  She will be greatly missed by family and friends. Marie was a longtime member of the Jones Chapel Church of Christ and attended Peytonsville Church of Christ.

Funeral services will be conducted 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020 at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home, Jim Taylor, Dan Bouie and Scott Bond officiating.  Interment Mt. Hope Cemetery.  Active pallbearers will be sons, Peter, Joey and Shad Herbert; and grandsons, Zach, Luke and Houston Herbert.  Honorary pallbearers will be Jimmy and Robbie Smithson; Frances Carter; Susan Ingraham; Donna Savage; Becky Crowell Martin; Tom and Trish Higgins; granddaughters, Emalyn and Ava Herbert; and Nicki Davis. 

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Dr. Aaron Milstone and his staff and Williamson Medical Center Third Floor Critical Care Nurses. 

In lieu of flowers, the Herbert family asks you celebrate generosity and compassion of Marie’s spirit by paying it forward, and doing something kind for one in need or to the Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Fund.
