She retired from the Postal Service, and she and Richard moved to the home they built on Kelly Lake in Barnes, Wisconsin.  Kelly Lake held a special place in the hearts of both Mary and Richard, as they had vacationed on this lake  with their family for many years before their retirement.  Mary loved everything about the outdoors.  She enjoyed tending to her flower and vegetable gardens and enjoyed the challenge of propegating plants. Mary enjoyed cross country skiing, hunting, fishing and a good competitive game of cards with her family.  Mary and her late husband Richard,  enjoyed berry picking, cocktails at the beach and long walks on the many trails on their land.  Mary was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Palmyra and of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Hayward, since her move to Barnes.  Mary was a life time member of  the Barnes VFW Auxiliary.  She was very active in the Kelly Lake Association, and enjoyed the many years she spent with her friends at the Barnes Garden Club.  Mary was an extremely independent person, who unconditionally loved  her family and people from all walks of life whom she came to know.
