She was very proud of her 20+ years at Lands End, 10+ years as a Coordinator of Religious Education (CRE) for Belmont, Truman and Calamine Catholic Parishes plus teaching home economics at Shullsburg High School. When she wasn’t enjoying a trip across country camping or just seeing new places, she spent time with family and friends from the Calamine neighborhood or the ones she met over the years.

Mary is survived by her brother, Tom (Jean) McGuire, of Mineral Point, WI; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and two brothers, Ronald and Robert McGuire.

For those who prefer, a memorial fund has been established in Mary’s name.

The family wishes to thank all the people at the Lafayette Manor and Edenbrook in Platteville for making a home for her over the last 12 years after she was unable to live at her Calamine home.
