Mary Jane Kail Obituary
July 4, 1919 - December 28, 2017 Mary Kail, 98, passed away peacefully on December 28, 2017. She was born July 4, 1919 in Perry, Iowa, to Anna and Christian Johansen, immigrants from Denmark. She moved to Santa Monica, California, in 1942 to marry Norman Kail (deceased 4-17-2015) also from Perry, Iowa. They lived in Santa Monica and Westchester where they raised their daughters Donna and Carol. Mary was a homemaker who enjoyed entertaining family and friends, was very involved in her children's activities, a marvelous cook, loved working in her garden, was active in the Lady Elks, and a generous and loving friend to many. She loved to shop and passed that love on to her daughters, granddaughter and great-granddaughter. Mary and Norm loved being with their family and enjoyed their many family vacations. They especially enjoyed their trips to Las Vegas. She was preceded in death by her husband of 72 years, daughter Donna and brother Arthur. She is survived by daughter Carol Baer and her husband Nick Baer, grandson Jeffrey Baer, granddaughter Amy McCabe (Esmond), great-grandchildren Neva Baer and Hunter McCabe, sister-in-law Blanche Vodenik and her niece and nephews. The world was a better place with Mary in it. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Memorial contributions may be made to St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California.
