Mary was a very warm, compassionate person, who shared a lot of humor and love with those around her.
May she find happiness again in Heaven, reunited with her beloved husband Richard and other passed relatives.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to her two sons and their families in this time of sadness.

DEAN & DALE & FAMILY
Kay & I are sadden with passing of Mary. Both of your parents were and remain very special people in our lives. Our memories of them are so precious that they are talked about often, especially around bon fires. This is a sad chapter in the passing of “The Greatest Generation”. May God receive and bless Mary and reunite her with Richie in His kingdom. We are so sorry we cannot be with you in these sad times.
Love you guys,
Keith & Kay and Family
Sympathies to everyone in your family. Our farm (Math and Susan Klassen) was about a mile from Richard and Mary’s farm. I remember the day “we got new neighbors” from Minneapolis – with a boy my age (David Davidschofer). Richard combined our grain for many years with that IH combine. Mary was kind, yet firm, whenever David and I needed straightening out. Thanks, Mary and Richard. You are missed.
Dean and Dale,
We are sad to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember such great times with your mom (and dad) at countless weddings, birthday parties and family reunions filled with laughter and fun. These warm memories will keep her love among us forever. I thought of you and your loved ones this morning (around the time of your mom’s funeral) and wondered how you were doing. I hope you are in peace, as she now has found eternal happiness with your dad at God’s side. We are sorry to have been unable to attend the services for your mom today and the peaceful reflection that these gatherings offer. Peace be with you during this difficult time.
Love to all,
Tom, Maryann, Theresa and Michelle
