Mary E. Settle, age 74 of Houston, Texas, passed away on October 26, 2014.  Mary loved to fish, garden and paint.  She also had a thriving business “Head Hunters by Mary” in her younger years as hairstylist to the astronauts during the early shuttle missions.  She had beauty, style and a whit about her that everyone loved.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
