Most knew Mary for her outgoing personality, love for helping others, and dedication to family. Her amazing personality was evident through her passion for life and sense of adventure. Always with a smile on her face, she was up for anything. She would join you for an impromptu concert in the park, take in a midnight canoe run down the Brule River, and get you out of bed in hopes of seeing the northern lights. Whether it was horseback riding with her granddaughter, teaching family how to fly fish, or showing others on the ski hill how to snowboard, she spread her happiness to everyone she met.
Above all, Mary loved family. She cherished her relationship with her parents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and especially loved being a grandma. She would often stop by to pick up the grandkids for the day, giving way to the nickname “grandma day care”, and she shared with them her adventurous spirit. Alongside her husband, Larry, she took great pride in raising her children with a sense of love for faith, family, and tradition.
Always putting the needs of others before herself, she was willing to do anything for anyone. She was an inspiration and role model to all who knew her. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. “No worries. Be Happy”.
