Mary Cathren Stewart Chaffin, 86, of Birmingham, Alabama, passed away on October 14, 2021.
Mrs. Chaffin was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 59 years, Arthur Banks Chaffin. Also preceding her in death were her parents William and Verla Stewart, and sisters Robbie Gosa, Sue Greene, and Marie Stewart. She grew up in the community of Glen Allen, Alabama, and graduated from Hubbertville High School. She was a member of NorthPark Baptist Church.
Mrs. Chaffin is survived by her son Michael Chaffin (Mitzi), daughter Susan Goggins (Barry), grandchildren Ashli Polizos (Pete), Brianna Rich (Steven), Rachel Goggins, Joshua Chaffin, and Leah Goggins, and great-grandchildren James, Andrew, and Adelyn Polizos.
Mrs. Chaffin remembered fondly her high school principal requiring all graduating seniors to memorize 1 Corinthians 13 and often quoted those verses.
In her memory, in lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Serving You Ministries via NorthPark Baptist Church, 5700 Deerfoot Parkway, Trussville, AL 35173, so that this 1 Corinthians love can be shown to those in need. Barry Goggins officiated a graveside service at Jefferson Memorial Gardens in Trussville on Saturday, October 16, at 10 AM. Joshua Chaffin, Tom Chaffin, Randy Greene, Stewart Greene, Pete Polizos, and Steven Rich served as pallbearers.
