She is also survived by numerous, loving, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, infant son Michael, and her sister Jean Hanson.

Mary graduated from D.C. Everest High School in 1958. After which, she went to UW-Stout and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Home Economics. She then went on to UW-Stevens Point, where she obtained Master's degrees in both Home Economics and Education. Post graduate work was done at UW-Superior toward a Doctorate. After her Baccalaureate degree, Mary taught in various Wisconsin Schools from Galesville to St. Stanslaus Kostka, Stevens Point. In 1965, she began working as a Home Economics Instructor at Mid-State Technical School, Stevens Point Campus.

She had many hobbies and interests which included: Breakfast Club with the Mid-State Retirees, YMCA Swim Class, watching her Packers, playing Cribbage to double skunk many of us; flower gardening; sewing, crocheting, and listening to Polka music with her husband. Most recently, Mary watched Mass twice a day and ended her evenings with praying the Rosary. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed nourishing her loved ones.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. I remember staying at your house with Monica in grade school and your mom bought us Barbie dolls and I got to pick eggs at your grandma’s where Beth lives. My prayers to all of you, Heidi Hirzy (Whitey and Kay Worzalla’s daughter)
