DeMann, Mary S. Martin, MI Mary went to be with her Lord and Savior, Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at home, surrounded by family following a brief illness. She was born March 30, 1958 in St. Joseph, MI to the Rev. Emerson and Eleanor Minor. The youngest of five children, Mary graduated from Plainwell High School in 1976. While in high school she played a supporting role in the Musical, "The Wizard of Oz." She graduated from Pine Rest School of Nursing in 1978 with an LPN Degree in nursing. Prior to her marriage she worked at Pipp-Borgess Hospital in Plainwell. Mary was an active member of East Martin Christian Reformed Church. She was a volunteer at Christian Neighbors and helped pack summer kid food bags and helped with the newsletters. She also enjoyed camping, word puzzles, mowing the lawn, knitting, crocheting and baking. She took pleasure in decorating her old farmhouse in "old farmhouse" style. She loved to "gator" back and forth to the farm where she would feed calves with her granddaughter, Kinsler. She walked nearly every day and loved studying the Bible. Her favorite times were with her granddaughter, Kinsler, whom she absolutely adored. Kinsler and Mary loved to cook and bake together and play babies. Mary was preceded in death by her parents.

Oh my gosh she was such a wonderful cousin. I will really miss the postings of her granddaughter and the cows and all the cow jokes. Prayers for Steve and the family from the Kostakis’s.
