Mary Louise Shore - Stanley James Dundas

Mary L. Shore went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, Feb. 16, at home after a lengthy illness. Little Rock, Ark., was the birthplace of this beloved wife and mother on Oct. 9, 1929. She moved to Tucson with her parents and brother in the mid-forties, then off to college in Phoenix to meet her future husband. Married in 1951 to Clay, they then had two children, Rick and Karen, in the following years.

Busy with their varied ministries, Clay and Mary lived between Phoenix, Tucson and Casa Grande. They finally moved to Kingman in 1979, where they took on the Youth Group at Manzanita Baptist Church. Several years later, Bible Baptist Church was begun and Clay pastured there for over 13 years. Mary was such an integral part in all of these experiences – always the “right-hand man.”

Mary is survived by her husband of 54 years; one brother, Robert of Tucson; son, Rick of Santa Fe, N.M.; daughter, Karen of Williams; eight grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Interment took place in Chloride Cemetery on Friday afternoon with family and many friends attending to pay honor to this dear lady. A memorial service will be held at Cornerstone Baptist Church at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 3.

Stanley James Dundas was born May 21, 1947, at Children’s Hospital, Denver. He died from pancreatic cancer on Monday, Feb. 20, 2006, in Kingman.

Mr. Dundas was graduated from Pioneer High School, Whittier, Calif., in 1963. He attended art school on a scholarship, and until his cancer diagnosis, was an electrician in the Kingman area. He was married twice, to Donnis Belcher in 1964 and then to Jean Marie Ragoni in 1984.

His father, Robert Earl Dundas, preceded him in death. Stanley or “Jim” is survived by his mother, Betty Jo Dundas; a sister, Judith Ann Dundas; a brother, Phillip Wayne Dundas; and two children, Maureen Lee Dundas (Larue), born Sept. 7, 1964, and James Austin Dundas, born April 9, 1984. His grandson, Nicholaus Alan Larue, and great-grandson, Nikko Alan Larue also survive him. Mr. Dundas was known for being a skilled carpenter and woodcarver, and his work appears in several buildings, offices and boats across the Southwest. He will be remembered as a private man who enjoyed being with his close friends, playing his guitar, and never passing up a swap meet.

At Mr. Dundas’s request, there will be no services.
