A beloved wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker, Mary was an excellent cook and baker and enjoyed time with her family and friends. Mary and Ken loved going to Branson, Missouri for some great country music and they enjoyed dancing cheek-to-cheek at the Amvets. Mary lived her life by the “golden rule” and always made everyone feel welcomed by opening her heart and home. She was a long-time member of St. John Lutheran Church.
The extraordinary caregivers at St. Joseph Ministries/St. Catherine’s and Frederick Health Care Hospice lovingly cared for Mary the last 2 years and 8 months of her life. The family gives them and everyone else who cared for Mary their greatest gratitude.
A private funeral service and interment will be held in the Fairfield Union Cemetery. If desired, flowers are welcomed or donations in her memory may be made out to the Fairfield Fire Company or St. John Lutheran Church.
