Mary Martha Pulliam, 68, died Thursday, October 6, 2022, at home surrounded by her family. She was born in Winston Salem, NC and spent her entire life in King, NC. She is the daughter of Frank Grigg Pulliam and Betty Lou McGee Pulliam. Mary worked as a registered nurse at various medical facilities and retired from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. She deeply loved volunteering her time with the North Carolina Baptist Mens Group going on mission trips to many different countries.
In addition to her parents, she is preceeded in death by her brother, Steven Gregg Pulliam. She is survived by her sister, Frankye Martin of King, NC, brother, Mark Pulliam and wife Mary Francis of King, NC, and first cousin Nancy Smith and husband Rickie of King, NC, who provided support and care to ensure Mary's last few months were as comfortable as possible. She was also the aunt to many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews whom she claimed as her own children. Summer trips to the beach and countless hours playing video games with them made her the "cool aunt".
Mary was a fountain of knowledge and was the first to tell you she knew everything. Those close to her knew she had a heart of gold and would always be willing to help her family and community.
A private family service will be held at a future date. Due to Mary's avid participation with St. Baldrick's Foundation, in lieu of flowers, donations, or condolences, please send a donation to Brenner Children's Hospital - Pediatric Oncology and include in the memo: Children's Cancer Fund, in Memory of Mary Pulliam.
