Mary is survived by her son, Ed of Madison, her daughter, Jan of Sebastopol, CA; her sisters, Ardith of West Allis, Audrey of Racine; her brother, Gordon of LaValle and her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Don and Betty Dvorak of Waupun.  She is also survived by nieces, nephews, her brother-in-law, Robert Hosking, sister-in-law, Jeanne Stittleburg, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Adolph; mother and father, Ella and James Stittleburg; her brothers, Willis and Jack Stittleburg; her sister, Pearl; and her son, Gary Dvorak.

Mary loved to garden and read.  She was always available to play a hand of cards at a moment’s notice.  Mary loved children.  When she entered a room, if she saw a baby, her eyes would light up, she smiled and the child always ended up in her lap.  No loved one ever celebrated a birthday or holiday without receiving a card from Mary.

Mary was loved and will be missed by all of her family and friends and she has loved each and every one in return.
