A private memorial service was held Thursday, February 14, 2013 at Holy Cross Cemetery in Spokane, WA.
Mary was born August 6, 1924, in Cleveland, OH and lived in many cities throughout the United States.
In addition to working outside the home, she enjoyed travel, playing bingo and billiards.
She was preceded in death by her daughter Donna M. Ross, granddaughter Victoria S. Planovsky and husbands Mark J. Planovsky and Clyde E. Bauer.
She is survived by her six children; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; two step-children; sister Agnes Hansen; brother John Kolesar, and extended family.
As a member of St. Joeseph’s Church in Colbert, Mary’s devout faith gave her great comfort in her final days.
She will be truly missed by all those whose lives she touched.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests charitable donations be given in her name to the charity of your choice.
