Mary Louise, loving mother of Peyton Louise and Joshua Louis Merkle. Devoted daughter of Hypha and Harry Groen. Dear sister of Gina (Daniel) Fries, Laura (Paul) Federico and Louis (Pam) Groen. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Aunt Arlene. Mary's life was far too short. She had a welcoming gift for sharing stories about her family and life. She loved to laugh and make others laugh with her. Her sense of humor and love of mischief made her a joy to be around. She was independent and fiercely passionate about her family. She had unending courage and displayed an inner strength throughout her long illness. She filled our hearts with love and as her journey here came to an end, her true self shone through always thanking her care givers. Her love will not be forgotten and her memory will forever live inside all who knew her. July 23, 2014. Age 44 years.
