Mary was born on September 11,1929 in Kansas City Kansas to Harry and Nellie Cantrell. She passed at St.Luke’s South Hospital on November 22, 2017.  She was preceded in death by her brother Robert L. Cantrell, first husband Thomas R. Saunders (1977), her second husband William J. Muncy (2003), and nephews Michael and Phillip Cantrell.  Mary lived almost all of her life in Kansas and was very proud of being a “Kansan”. She lived in Kansas City, Kansas as a child and young  adult where she attended Riverview Grade School and graduated from Wyandotte High School in 1947. As an adult she attended some college courses at Johson County Community College. At age 25, Mary and first husband Tom Saunders moved to Gladstone, Missouri and shortly thereafter welcomed their only child, Kevin R. Saunders. They lived there until moving to Overland Park, Kansas in 1967. Tom was the manager of Adlers at Metcalf South Mall and Mary worked for Panhandle Eastern Pipeline Co. from 1959 until taking early retirement in 1985. She worked for J.C. Penny Catalog from 1985 to 1991, again taking early retirement to take care of her grandson Luke.  Mary loved to travel, specifically cruises. During her travels she took over 20 cruises, with four or five of them being to her favorite destination: Hawaii.  After her travels ceased, Mary still managed to keep her calendar full. She faithfully attended a water aerobics classes at the Matt Ross Center 3 times a week and met once a month with the Lady Retirees from Panhandle for lunch. As an active member of the College Church of the Nazarene, she met with a group of ladies from the church every Tuesday morning for breakfast and an occasional game of dominos.   Mary was a lovely Mother, Aunt, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Cousin and friend and she will be greatly missed.  She is survived by her Son Kevin R. Saunders (Cathy Saunders), Granddaughter Nikole Wulff (Justin Wulff), Grandson Lucas Saunders, Great-Granddaughter Carena Wulff, Nephew Gary Cantrell (Eileen Cantrell) and the Best Cousin Ever, Lonnie Chiavola.  Visitation will be 1 pm Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at the Porter Funeral Home, 1835 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, Kansas.
