Mary Virginia Bass

February 6, 1932 — May 28, 2024

Indianapolis

Mary Virginia (Livers) Bass, was born to Joe Capp Livers and Rena (Belmar) Livers on February 6, 1932, in Fairfield, KY. She transitioned to her eternal home on May 28, 2024. Mary received her high school education from Attucks High School. She later met and married her husband, Ivory Lee Bass, who preceded her in death. They raised six children together, spending many years by each other’s sides, raising their family and watching their children and then grandchildren grow.

Mary was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt to many. She was a member of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church where pastor Dr. Theron D. Williams presided over. She enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, watching her favorite television shows (especially Wheel of Fortune), as well as taking care of her home and decorating for the holidays. At the family reunions, she was the life of the party and was always dancing.  Her greatest joy in life, however, was the time she spent with her family, who will all miss her very much.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Ivory Bass; parents, Joe and Rena Livers; son-in-law, Ken Brown; and her brothers and sisters, Shirley “Elizabeth”, Emma, Roxy, Margaret, Joseph, Lucille, and Belwood.

Mary leaves to cherish her memory her children, Pamela “Pam” Bass, Timothy “Tim” (Gina) Bass, Kevin (Karen) Bass, Sabrina (Kenneth) Brown, Jerome (Janice) Bass, and Taiwan Bass; 14 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; brother, Thomas “Peewee” (Marie) Livers; brother-in-law, Pete Arthur Stevens; sister-in-law, Mary Livers; special friend, Ms. Josie; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.
