FRANKLIN, VA – Mary Jane Pace Herring, 96, passed away July 29, 2020 in East Pavilion at Southampton Memorial Hospital, Franklin, VA. She was born in Charlottesville, VA and was a long-time resident of Ahoskie, NC.

Mary Jane was a graduate of Lane High School in Charlottesville and a member and long-time Sunday School teacher at Ahoskie First Baptist Church. She was a volunteer and Auxiliary member at Roanoke Chowan Hospital.

The thousands of golfers that entered the golf shop at Beechwood Country Club in the sixties and seventies always saw her smiling face and outgoing personality. During summers, parents would drop off their kids to play golf or at the swimming pool knowing they would be well taken care of by the Herrings. She was loved by her many friends, especially her legendary Bridge Club. She also dedicated many years involved in the Northeastern Amateur golf tournament at Beechwood.

Left to cherish her memory are three sons, Daniel Edward “Dan” Herring, Jr. (Teresa) of Rocky Mount, NC, Jack David Herring (Joan) of Courtland, VA, and Charles Ernest Herring (Carolyne) of Colonial Heights, VA; five grandchildren, Trey Herring (Lucas), Allison Elliott (Ben), Melissa Herring (Sandy), David Herring, and Courtney Voigtman (Thomas); three great grandchildren, Logan Herring, Grayson Herring, and Haley Byrum; and a former daughter-in-law, Cynthia Rose (Larry).

The family would like to thank the staff of the East Pavilion for their wonderful care.

Mary Jane is predeceased by her husband, Daniel Edward Herring; her mother, Katherine Pace; and her brother, Linwood Pace.
