She married Ervin Schauer on October 25, 1963. She had a variety of jobs. During the War, Mary worked for Heckenthorn - a war plant that manufactured shells. In 1950, Mary started working at Honeywell on the assembly line and advanced to quality control where she retired after 29 years of faithful service. Mary had a servant’s heart helping individuals in whatever capacity she had. Whether it was helping her children or grandchildren meet their own dreams or in the last months, her willingness to share even her food, she gave all she had. She was a quiet, strong woman able to always accomplish what she desired. She laughed easily, never complained and loved all whom she met. She was an active and dedicated member in the Lutheran church. The date for the graveside inurnment in Englewood, Colorado is to be determined. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Mary’s life. The family would like to thank all the caregivers for their care. Please Sign the Guestbook at eastvalleytribune.com
