Mary Elizabeth Chase Alone was born on February 19, 1940 in Ethete, WY to Robert Armour and Adeline White Antelope.  Mary made her journey to the Spirit World on January 24, 2022 at the Avantara Mountain View Care Center in Rapid City, SD.  

Mary lived most of her early life in Ethete, WY, going to school and graduating high school. She left for school in Bismarck, ND, where she later met her husband, George T. Chase Alone Sr.  

Together, they moved to Manderson and were married in 1974. This marriage was blessed with seven children: Elizabeth, George Jr, Leonard, Eunice, Robert, Homer, & Sonia Chase Alone.  

Mary worked as a CHR for the Community of Manderson for 2 years and also worked with the Oglala Lakota College Center. After her job ended, she was at home taking care of children and grandchildren.  

Mary loved to cook, sew, make her oven bread (which we all loved), and walking around outside.  She used to feed her squirrels (her babies) peanuts. and when she got chickens they were also her babies – but the rooster would always chase people.  

Mary lived a long and happy life and did her best for caring for her family.  Our mother, grandmother, and aunt, will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her, especially her children.  We love you Mom!  Until we meet again…love your children. 

Mary is survived by her sons, Leonard Chase Alone, Sr., Robert “Bob” Chase Alone, and Bruce Davis; daughters, Sonia Chase Alone and Frances Chase Alone; and numerous grandchildren, nieces, & nephews.
