Heaven has gained another angel. Although her Earth wings were strong, we know her angel wings will be even stronger. Just as she has done the last 100 years, she will continue to watch over her family. Words cannot begin to describe Mary. Whether you were a blood relative or friend, you were immediately family to Mary, for life. She was and will always be the most remarkable, beautiful, caring, kind, inspirational, problem solver, strong, sweet, happy, life of the party, funny, story teller, infectious, selfless woman who we have had the honor to call mother, sister, auntie, grandma, great grandma, great great grandma. Just being in her presence made your day better. She has touched so many lives and hearts along her very long journey here on this Earth. Amazing doesn't even seem to sum her up! She had a huge heart who had little expectations, lived a simple life and enjoyed such simple things, but loved in the biggest way. Her family always meant the most. She always provided the most unconditional love. While she is no longer with us, her memories, life lessons, and laughter will always be with us and kept close to our hearts.
A Graveside Service will be held for Mary on Friday, April 30, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Highland Memorial Park, 14875 West Greenfield Avenue, New Berlin. Please meet inside the cemetery entrance.
Please remember Mary and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
