Mary Tom Speer-Reid

June 13, 1925 – September 16, 2014


The Homecoming family is sad to learn that Mary Tom Speer-Reid passed away of natural causes on Tuesday afternoon, September 16.  She was 89 years of age.

Mary Tom was the youngest daughter of “Mom and Pop” Speer (GT and Lena) and sang alto for the Speer Family for much of her life.  She was a beloved member of the Homecoming family, a staff member at the Stamps School of Music, and a secretary for Ben Speer Music.

We will always remember her beautiful voice and her gentle spirit.  Enjoy the following clip of Mary Tom singing the old favorite, “Sweeter Each Day.”
