December 30, 1933 - December 16, 2021
Mary Colleen Harris Pamplin peacefully passed away surrounded by her family on December 16th, 2021 in Louisville, Ky. She was 87. Born on December 30, 1933, Mary grew up in Louisville and attended Shawnee High School. She subsequently went to work for what was then J.J.B. Hilliard & Son. It was here that she met the love of her life, Gilbert Lee Pamplin. Mary and Gil were together since their first date and were married for over 50 years. She adored Gil and the life they built together, including their four children and six grandchildren. Mary was known for her unmatched humor, wit and fashion sense. She loved a good cup of coffee or a glass of cabernet, especially when shared with her family. She was an avid sports competitor, and despite her size, she was a force to be reckoned with on the tennis court, golf course and bowling lanes. She was a member of Louisville Country Club, Pendennis Club, Owl Creek Country Club as well as Quail Ridge Country Club located in Boynton Beach, Florida. Always gracious and warmly welcoming, Mary was blessed with a wide circle of friends with whom to share her perspective and wisdom. Above all she was fiercely dedicated to her family and especially cherished time with her beloved grandchildren with whom she shared a deep affinity for all things Disney, including an unforgettable ride on Splash Mountain when she was 80. Mary was preceded in death by her husband of over 50 years Gilbert Lee Pamplin, her mother Edna Von Allmen Harris and her sister Barbara Harris Russell. She is survived by her children Colleen Pamplin, Lee Pamplin (Jaime), Amy Pamplin Anders (John) and Sally Pamplin Herndon (Tom); her grandchildren Jordan and Ryan Pamplin, Nicholas and Katherine Anders, and Kelsey and Will Herndon. A private ceremony will be held by the family. Memorial gifts may be made to Norton Children’s Hospital.
