Mary & Tom would have celebrated their anniversary of 67 years on October 2, 2021. God definitely had a plan. Mary enjoyed serving God, family, friends, and was committed to the health and well-being of her community, particular youth at-risk for substance abuse and suicide. She, with friends and local professionals, founded and ran numerous programs for youth and families - Friday Night Kids group coinciding with recovery programs, Youth Leadership Days, early release days, holiday programs in Riverdale Schools, swimming lessons and passes, Riverway Communities of Hope provides therapy and transportation for youth throughout Southwest Wisconsin. Many of those volunteers and youth have become family. Mary and her team funded these programs through perennial plant and rhubarb sales, donations, and grants. This work is recognized state and locally. Mary was awarded the Presidential Volunteer Jefferson Award, 1981 Heart of Faternalism Award, State of WI. 1st Lady Volunteerism Award and the Grand Marshall for the Morel Mushroom Festival. Mary didn't do this work alone, she inspired and had so many faithful volunteers. Mary also made masks, burp cloths, and pillowcases during the pandemic. She felt that was her way of helping and she had to do it. Until her last days, she was on a mission. She was known for her cinnamon rolls, jellies, jams, rhubarb desserts, plant sales and prayers. Mary was a kind, determined, sincere, faith-filled, loving woman with a generous heart of a true leader and advocate. If you had been lucky enough to have known her, she would have loved and prayed for you. Mary enjoyed her 90th birthday to the fullest. She had almost 200 people in attendance. She loved every minute of it. Thanks to all who came and shared that blessed day.
