She was a remarkable woman, strong and yet sensitive and loving. Family was very important to her as witnessed by the many gatherings she hosted and attended. She was also a huge Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins fan. One of her proudest moments was when she purchased her home. It was a great accomplishment for a single woman in the early '70s. Mary will be greatly missed! Until we meet again In Heaven we love you! In light of concern regarding the community spread of Covid-19 the family has decided to have a private Mass at St. Boniface Catholic Church and burial at Gethsemane Catholic Cemetery. A memorial/ Celebration of life will be held at a later date. Memorials preferred to an organization of your choosing. God bless everyone during these difficult times! Swanson Chapel 612-529-9691
