Mary Marie Skaggs-Donohue

September 26, 1935 — November 17, 2023


Mary Marie Skaggs-Donohue of Chillicothe went home to the Lord on November 17, 2023, at the Vineyards in Frankfort after an extended illness. She was born on September 26, 1935, in Ross County to the late Eursa and Ruby (Chaney) Kellough.

She will be sadly missed by her children, Stanley (Mary) Skaggs of Chillicothe and Benny (Lisa) Skaggs of Maineville;  grandchildren Andrea (Jeremy) Witter, Jason (Amanda) Skaggs, Kyle (Alexis) Skaggs, Kelsey (Joshua) Mygatt, Kamron Skaggs, great-grandchildren; Chance Skaggs, Hunter Skaggs, Renee Hill, Mason Skaggs, Hope Skaggs, Luna Skaggs, Story Skaggs; great- great-grandchild Luke Skaggs; step children Bob (Anita) Donohue, Todd (Linda) Donohue, and Brenda Redeagle; and their 6 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren; and great-great grandchild. Also surviving are her brothers Everett (Loraine) Kellough, Phil (Alice) Kellough, Jim (Diane) Kellough, Danny (Kathy) Kellough and sister Connie (Larry) Irvin.

In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death in 1997 by her husband of 42 years Delbert Skaggs, her husband of 14 years Walter (Bill) Donohue in 2014 and her brother Milton Kellough.

Mary was a devoted member of Maple Grove Church for many decades and lived a life filled with unwavering faith and love for the Lord. She leaves behind a legacy of faith that was passed on to her children. She will be deeply missed, but her spirit will live on through the lives she enriched.

A graveside service will be held 1:00 pm on Wednesday afternoon November 22 in the Twin Township Cemetery, Bourneville; followed immediately by a celebration of her life at the Maple Grove Church.

It was evident to those around Mary that she fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. Now she wears the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, awarded her on that day—and not only to her, but also to all who long for His appearing. (2 Tim. 4:7-8)

The SMITH-MOORE-EBRIGHT FUNERAL HOME of Bainbridge is serving the family.
