Mary Elizabeth Monk, 91, of Pikeville, NC (formally of Newton Grove, NC), passed away at
home surrounded by her loved ones early Saturday morning on June 24, 2023.
Mary was born on April 27 in 1932 to Olive Leona and Elmer Thomas Buck in Milton PA.
In 1952, she met George Bernard Monk of Newton Grove in Milton, PA. They were married in
January of 1953 and then moved to Newton Grove to live on the family farm and went on to

Mary dedicated her life to her family. She worked on the family farm and supported her family
through many challenging life events. She always wanted to help others.
