Mary Kelly Aycox passed away October 17, 2011, at her residence in Social Circle. She was 84 years old at the time of her death. Mrs. Aycox’s love of baseball came from watching her father and brothers play baseball, and even saw them play in Porterdale. Her love for baseball transferred to the Atlanta Crackers and then the Atlanta Braves. She loved cross-stitching, reading autobiographies and biographies, and hearing stories about her great-grandchildrens’ activities. She enjoyed daily phone conversations with her family and friends. Mrs. Aycox was a member of Mt. Carmel Christian Church in Decatur but attended Covington Christian Church and Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church after moving to Social Circle. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
