Mary Louise La Porte, 87, died Friday, February 1, 2013 at the Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center in Brush.
Mary was born May 10, 1925 in Miamisburg, Ohio, to Harry and Margaret La Porte. She moved to Fort Morgan about 25 years ago from Dayton, Ohio, after retiring as a billing clerk with an advertising agency to be closer to her son, John.
She was a member of the United Methodist Church in Fort Morgan. Mary enjoyed crafts, embroidery, camping and fishing, reading, and belonged to rock hound clubs in her earlier years. She also volunteered at the Fort Morgan Museum by helping with classes, setting up displays and being a greeter.
Mary loved her family and they were very important to her, especially her grandchildren.
Survivors include her son, John La Porte and wife Paula of Fort Morgan; grandchildren, Chris La Porte and wife Nicole of Brush, and Ryan La Porte of Fort Morgan; great-grandchildren, Caleb Alexander, and Katlyn, Ethan and Jonah La Porte.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Funeral services will be Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. at the United Methodist Church in Fort Morgan. Interment will follow in Memory Gardens. Friends who wish may make memorial gifts to the Fort Morgan Museum.
The Heer Mortuary in Fort Morgan is in charge of the arrangements.
