That was the school that she went to. During her time at school, she participated in a wide range of extracurricular activities, including volleyball, basketball, softball, chorus, and band, among other things. She graduated from high school with a wealth of experiences that will last a lifetime and a solid group of friends that she still keeps in contact with to this day as a direct result of this. She went on to receive a degree in teaching at Mankato State University, after which she began her career as a teacher.

She continued her education there. Mary spent her whole career in the field of education, which spanned her entire life. She will have accomplished her life’s goal of having an influence on young adults by the time she retires in 2022, having spent her career as an educator in the school systems of Cleveland, Montgomery, and Waseca. Her retirement is scheduled for 2022. Mary worked as a teacher for drivers’ education, and during the summers she would spend her time in the classroom training kids about safe driving practices. Mary has been an elected official on the Elysian City Council for the past 17 years.

All of the people in Mary’s life, including her family and friends, will miss her immensely since she was such a wonderful grandma, wife, mother, sister, and friend. Mary will be profoundly missed by all of the people in her life. Mary had a deep love for her family, and she was always there for them anytime anyone in the family had a problem or a requirement. She was the one in charge of party planning and loved to organize and host family gatherings, especially celebrations of the Fourth of July, when everyone was always welcome. She also enjoyed throwing parties for friends and coworkers as well.

She acted as the glue that bound the members of the family together into a single entity. Mary had a full and eventful life, but the time she got to spend with her children was the part of her day that she treasured the most. She loved going on adventures, such as going hiking, canoeing, tubing down the river, fishing for trout, watching the Minnesota Vikings, and going to the Winstock music festival every year. She had an intense passion for her fresh tomatoes and discovered that canning tomatoes and cucumbers brought her a great deal of personal fulfillment.
