Mary then worked for Pope and Talbot before moving to Peoria, AZ in 1996. She was fortunate enough to have met a wonderful partner, Peter Pellizzari whom she lived with in West Brook Village until her passing.
She was survived by her two children and three grandchildren: Stephanie & Bob Bohrer (Molly), Stacy & Bob Gryboski (Jake and Alex) all of Green Bay, WI. Her life partner Peter Pellizzari and her three sisters Jane Swatzina, Betty Bowe, Kay (Willard) Gullickson and nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
Mary was happiest when she was golfing or planning her next gathering for family and friends. She had a special knack for entertaining and making everyone feel welcome. Her contagious smile and zest for life will be missed by all.
A life celebration was held on September 1st from 4-7 P.M. at the West Brook Village in Peoria, AZ and another in Eau Claire, WI this fall.
