Mary Bender

November 12, 1962 ~ April 28, 2021 (age 58)


Mary Bender, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, passed away suddenly on April 28, 2021, at her home.

Mary was born to Helena and Joseph Walker on November 12, 1962, in Cobleskill, New York.

She is predeceased by her son, David Walker; and her grandchildren, Alex Van Valkenburgh Walker and Claire Duncan.

Mary is survived by her husband, Everett Scully; her children, Katherine (Scott) Duncan, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, William Cleveland, of Lima, New York, Willard Cleveland, of Mt. Cobb, Pennsylvania, Allison Shannon, of Amsterdam, New York, Michael Scully, of Russell Springs, Kentucky, and Angela Thomas, of Somerset, Kentucky.  She is also survived by her grandchildren, Connor, Cheyenne, Chloe, Cielo, Carly, Eva Rose, Winter (Toshi), Dominic, Gaige and Destiny; by several brothers and sisters; many nieces and nephews and extended family.

Mary will be remembered for her way to make everyone feel like her family; and for her love of singing, even if she didn’t know all the words.  She would always give someone the benefit of doubt and go above and beyond for everyone she met.  Mary will be greatly missed.

A private memorial service Celebrating Mary’s Life will be held at a later date.

Cremation rites were honored by Bernard Funeral Home.  An online guestbook is available at
