Mary Kay Thornsberry

Mary Kay Thornsberry, age 79 of Batesville, Indiana passed away on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at the Waters of Batesville.  She was born on May 17, 1941 to James and Rose (nee: Swango) Hacker in Batesville.

The 1960 Batesville High School graduate worked for Margaret Mary Community Hospital in the Medical Records department for many years.

She married David Thornsberry on March 21, 1963 at the United Methodist Church and they celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

Mary Kay was an avid mushroom hunter. She liked playing bingo and doing different types of art, like coloring and painting. Quite recently she helped her daughter embellish her wedding dress with many crystals. One of her most thrilling moments in life was when she had the opportunity to touch a live shark in the water.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, David; and daughter Connie (Troy) Thornsberry-Moore of Connersville; and brother, Harry Hacker of Batesville.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Jim Hacker; sister, Connie Paul and infant daughter, Amy Jolene Thornsberry.

Her wishes were to be cremated.  Services will be private.
