  • Notes 
    • Mary Blanton Auler Mary Blanton Auler was born on Easter Sunday, April 4, 1915, in San Angelo, Texas. From her birth to age seven, she lived most of the time on her family's ranch in Pecos County until she started school in Fort Stockton. From age eight to age fifteen, she lived and went to school in San Angelo, one of several places she would warmly refer to as home. After that she attended Hockaday Girls School in Dallas and later Alamo Heights in San Antonio, another place she warmly referred to as home. After graduating from Alamo Heights, she attended the University of Texas and pledged Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Not long thereafter, she met a young doctor and bachelor named Hugo Alfred Auler (co-founder of the Bachelors' Club of Austin). He didn't remain a bachelor for very long as the two were married on June 12, 1934.

      With the exception of some extended stays in Key Allegro at Rockport and the family ranch in Llano County, Mary Auler spent most of her life until her death in Austin, another place she warmly called home. Mary Auler was pre-deceased by her husband, Hugo Alfred Auler; her sister, Polly Blanton Brooks; and her brother, Ira Yates Blanton. She is survived by her daughter, Mary Ann Meyers, her husband Jim; her son, Hugo Edwin Auler, his wife, Susan; her grandchildren: Charles Edwin Auler, his wife Stacy; Dr. Mark Alfred Auler, his wife, Clary; Anne Greenwood Wooten, Joseph Goodall Wooten, and great-grandchildren: Yates Marie Auler, Charles Edwin Auler Jr., Mark Ashley Auler, Mary Margaret Auler, Sol Wooten, Savannah Wooten and a whole host of cousins living mainly in the Austin-San Antonio region westward toward El Paso.

      It is hard to believe that a person of such small stature (her relatives called her "Tincy") who grew up in such a large family (both in physical size and numbers) in a remote region of West Texas could have such an incredible and positive impact on so many lives. Mary Auler lived life in a simple straight-forward manner guided first, foremost, and entirely by her rock-solid faith and her love of Jesus Christ. She always thought of and acted for others first seeking nothing in return. She was an incredible example of how we all should live right up to her passing. She will be extraordinarily missed by all who knew her. Yet all who knew her know that she is now with her Lord in her one true and eternal home. Per Mary's request, services will be limited to a graveside service which will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, March 6, 2010, at Austin Memorial Park, 2800 Hancock Drive.
