Mary Rose Aiena Strother

A Vidor legend has entered eternal life! Mrs. Mary Rose Aiena Strother was born on October 27, 1924 and died this past week on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. She wanted to get to heaven as soon as possible to pull the Vidor Pirates onward to a State Championship for this upcoming season! Mrs. Strother was a dedicated employee of the Vidor Independent School district food services from 1965 until 1970. If you attended Vidor schools during these years, you were either was fed by her, or raced her on Main Street. More specifically, if you played for the mighty Pirates during the late 60’s, you might have had your pregame meal because of Mary. Since the cafeteria would close early on Fridays, some of the football team always would say, “Mary will feed us.” And, Mary did feed our Pirates before they took to the road by opening the back door of the old canteen. Once, a few players spotted Mary in her 1955 red and white hooded Cheverlet truck on Main Street in Vidor at a red light.
