Mary Irene Visser Obituary
Visser, Mary Irene

Mary Irene Visser, born in a log cabin in Washington to Max and Edith Luft on July 15, 1929 died January 12, 2016.

She is survived by her sons, Jim Visser his wife Andrea and John Visser his wife Penny; three grandchildren, Del Visser of Seattle, Zack Visser of Albuquerque and Tori Visser of Phoenix; brother, Max Luft his wife Jean; nephew, David Luft; and nieces, Julie Anne Luft, Cara Luft Heck and Cristy Luft Saint-Pierre. She is also survived by Mirra McFadden who touched her life for over 15 years.

She was blessed by her caring and loving friends and caretakers who continually visited and supported her during her recent illness.

Mary was truly a woman on the go, having lived in Arizona, California, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington. A significant part of Mary's life was visiting her family and friends throughout the country. Her family in Washington State held a special place in her heart.

After graduating from Michigan State University, she taught home economics and then took time off to raise her two sons. Many summers were spent traveling throughout the United States in their Air Stream trailer. In later life Mary was a compassionate caregiver nurturing her parents in her home for ten years. She was always inquisitive and passionate about learning; a few of her interests were food, spirituality, and wellness. If you had time, she would share what she had just learned or her most recent pursuit.

A celebration of the life of Mary Visser will be held Saturday, January 16, 2016, 11:00 a.m., at New Life Presbyterian Church, 5540 Eubank Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, 87111.

Should friends desire, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to New Life Presbyterian Church.
