Mary Edsel Copsey

Mary Edsel Copsey (nee Herbert), age 92, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at St. Mary’s Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown, MD.  She was born June 17, 1926 in Hughesville to the late Richard and Mary (Burch) Herbert.

Mary was preceded in death by her loving husband of 71 years, James W. (Mickey) Copsey, in 2016 and her brother, Richard Edward Herbert, in 2017.  She is survived by her three daughters, Barbara Morgan (Glen Burnie, MD), Linda Cairns (Mechanicsville, MD), and Kathy Rose (Shawnee, OK); son-in-law, Richard Cairns (Mechanicsville, MD); sister-in-law, Mary Alma Herbert (Charlotte Hall, MD); 7 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren, 10 great-great grandchildren and 3 nieces.

Mary was a life-long resident of Charlotte Hall, MD, who loved gardening and who supported and assisted in the day-to-day operations of her husband’s business, Mickey’s Shell.  In her later years, a phone call, a card or a visit was all it took to put a smile on her face.
