She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 67 years, Kenneth; her three children, Michael (Jill), Steven, and Daniel (Deb); her four grandchildren, Amanda (Brandon), Chase (Breeanna), Alexis, and Samuel; and her three great-grandchildren, Carmella, Cassidy, and Walker.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Emily Starck and seven siblings.

Mary enjoyed spending time in the great outdoors, tending to her garden, and playing card games with family and friends. She was also a dedicated member of Zion Lutheran Church. She never said no to enjoying an iced cold beer at Fast Eddie's BonAir. Her generosity had no limits and was affectionately coined the name "energizer bunny," as you would rarely see her sit down.

Mary's legacy is one of profound impact and enduring love, cherished dearly by all fortunate enough to know her. 

Graveside Service: Wednesday, April 24, 2024, from 10 to 11 a.m. at Zion Lutheran Cemetery, 3866 Old Hwy 94 S, St. Charles, MO 63304. (Please meet at the cemetery.)

Memorials may be made to Zion Lutheran Cemetery or Lutheran Elementary School Association in Mary's name.
