Mary has been a longtime resident of the Stanton area. She loved her flower garden and spending time with her family, especially the grandkids and looked forward to the family’s annual fishing trip to Houghton Lake. She worked at Central Montcalm Public Schools for 30 years and following her retirement, she went back and volunteered her time, making the difference for many students that were struggling.
At Mary’s request, cremation will take place and there will not be any funeral services held at this time; however a time of remembrance will be held at a later date.
For those desiring to do so, the family has suggested memorial considerations can be made to the Central Montcalm Public Schools Special Education Department.
