Mary E. Fecht-Gramley, age 76, of Kaneville, IL, passed from our sight on Christmas eve, December 24, 2017, and woke to a Christmas morning like no other. After long battle with the autoimmune deficiency disease, MDS, Mary is now free from the chains that broke her body, but never touched her determined spirit.

She was born on March 6, 1941, in Newport News, VA, to proud parents, Wilbur and Clara (Williams) Jessee.

Mary is survived by her sons, Albert "Abe" (Lori J.) Fecht, Stephen (Leanne) Gramley and Phillip (Christine) Gramley; five grandchildren; four siblings, Robert W. (Deann) Jessee, Thomas J. (Susan) Jessee, Wilbur C. (Sue) Jessee Jr., Marlene (Richard) Jessee Salazar; several in-laws, nieces, nephews, not to mention a whole countryside of friends and colleagues, who will miss her dearly.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the medical and nursing staff at Presence Mercy Center Hospital and Rainbow Hospice, as well as the Illinois Doberman Rescue.

She was preceded in death by her parents; paternal grandmother; first husband, Albert P. Fecht Sr.; son, Thomas C. Fecht; and second husband, Leon F. Gramley.

Visitation will be from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., with a memorial service to follow on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 218 E Benton St, Aurora, IL 60505. Rev. Denzil J. Luckritz, pastor of the church, will officiate with private family interment will follow at a later date.
