Mary P. Ksionsk

Mary P. Ksionsk (nee McNamara), age 46, peacefully passed away on March 19, 2014 after a lifelong battle with diabetes. Mary's laughter and contagious smile will be deeply missed by all, especially her husband, Todd, whom she married on September 20, 2008. They made their home in Stevens Point. She was the proud daughter of Patricia McNamara and the late Patrick (Pop) McNamara.

Mary was born in Stevens Point on the 27th of March where she attended St. Stephen's Grade School and graduated in 1986 from Pacelli High School. After graduation, Mary earned a degree from MSTC as a Certified Nursing Assistant and worked at River Pines Nursing Home for a number of years. Mary loved taking care of "her patients" and was sad to leave due to her own health issues. In January 1992 Mary received a kidney donation from her sister-in-law Debby.

Mary loved spending time with her family and friends; enjoyed old movies and her extensive movie, doll and ornament collections. She was an avid Steelers and NASCAR fan and doted upon their two dogs, Louie and Brisko.

Mary will be dearly missed by her brothers, Michael (Etsuko), Apple Valley MN and Daniel (Debby), Franklin WI; sisters, Susan (Kent) Zelhofer, Stevens Point; Elizabeth (Steven) Pecha, Franklin WI and sister-in-law Erin McNamara, Green Bay, WI. She is also survived by her father-in-law and mother-in-law, David and Lucy Ksionsk, Stevens Point. She is further survived by nephews, nieces and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She is preceded in death by three brothers, Stephen; Joseph and Kevin and one sister, Kathleen.

Visitation will take place on Monday, March 24, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Joseph's Parish 1709 Wyatt Ave., Stevens Point with Mass to follow at 10:30 a.m. Reverend Jerzy Rebacz officiating. Burial will be held at a later date at St. Stephen Catholic Cemetery. Pisarski/Dzikoski Funeral Home Stevens Point is assisting the family with arrangements.
