Mary I. Modjeski, age 81, passed away peacefully on January 23rd, 2023 with her family by her side. 

Mary was the daughter of Anthony and Isobelle Chelmowski.

She was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Kenneth Modjeski.  Their marriage of 60 years was full of love visible to all. 

Some words that come to mind when thinking of Mary are, nurturing, loving, compassionate, caring, leader, and believer.  She was a caregiver in all aspects of her life.  The best role model anyone could ever ask or pray for. 

So much love to give that while raising their four children they also fostered many through Catholic Charities. 

She and Ken loved family, playing cards with friends, many family trips, camping, biking, and long walks.  They spent many winters traveling out west in their R.V.  

She graduated from Cotter High School.  She then went on to be a Hairstylist/Salon owner.  She also received her Registered Nursing degree from Winona State University.  She was able to spread her love and care to many as she worked for Home Health and Hospice through Winona Health. 

Mary was proceeded in death by her parents, her son Joe, and her husband Ken.

She is survived by her daughter; Gerri (Bob) Duca.  Daughter; Teresa Hughes.  Son; Brad (Melissa) Modjeski.   As well as her 3 siblings, Lucy, Tony, Rose.     8 grandchildren and 4 greatgrandchildren. 

Visitation will be Friday, January 27th, at 11:30 a.m. Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka, with a funeral mass following at 12:00 noon.
