(September 18, 1946 - September 26, 2019)

Mary-Nivin Blundon Stover, 73, of White Stone, VA passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 26th at Memorial Regional Hospital in Mechanicsville, VA with both of her beloved sons by her side. Mary-Nivin was the widow of Herbert Wright Stover III, daughter of Lucy Newton Massey and Harold Gordon Blundon, Jr. of Richmond. She is survived by her sons Gordon Bruce Blundon Stover and Herbert Wright Stover IV (Bert), and her grandson Herbert Wright Stover V (Quinn).

Born and raised in Richmond, VA, Mary-Nivin spent weekends, summers and holidays in the Northern Neck visiting her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Nivin Massey of Mount Holly, Va and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gordon Blundon of Lively. Her time with family lead to a lifelong love and appreciation for the Northern Neck. After high school, Mary-Nivin left Virginia to attend Pfeiffer Junior College in Misenheimer, NC. While in NC Mary-Nivin also pursued her dream to be an airline stewardess. Her efforts were rewarded in 1973 when she began flying with Piedmont Airlines, based out of Winston-Salem, NC. It was during this endeavor when she met Herb and the two married in 1975.

Mary-Nivin and Herb settled in White Stone, VA in 1980 with their two children, where they opened a restaurant and hotel named The River Crossing at the foot of the Robert O.Norris Bridge on the Rappahannock River. Later, she would dedicate her time to raising her boys while participating in various school, community and volunteer activities. A longtime member of the Women’s Club of White Stone, Mary-Nivin was well known for her generosity and love. She was proud of her Northern Neck roots, her jams, her pickles, her Lemon poppy seed cakes and most of all, her sons.

Associate Rector, Pilar Parnell will perform a memorial service at Grace Episcopal Church, 303 South Main St, Kilmarnock, VA 22482 Saturday October 19th 2019 at 2pm.

This is such a shock to me, the last time we talked was at Lee's having dinner. I will always remember the talks that we had at TriStar. Both of us had so much in common, mainly our animals and the airlines.
