Mary Rebecca “Gehee” Brogdon, 91, of Lebanon, MO, formerly of Lake Village, AR, passed away Saturday, October 10, 2020 at E.W. Thompson Health & Rehabilitation Center, Sedalia, MO.

She was born November 21, 1928, in Yell County, AR, a daughter of the late Eugene and Ola (Stewart) McBride. On November 30, 1945, in Little Rock AR, she was married to Alfred Brogdon, who preceded her in death on March 3, 2003.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Kyle Brewton; and a sister, Dorothy Dotson.
