Mary Elizabeth Welsh

October 1, 1921 - November 24, 2018

On November 24, Mary’s spirit reached her home with our heavenly Father. Mary lived an unwavering life for God. She expressed her service through love for others, continuously helping others, praising and praying daily. Her years of experience and wisdom were an inspiration to all. Mary had a beautiful, radiant smile. She never knew a stranger, always lending a helping hand. Mary worked as a nurse’s aide for many years at St. Francis Hospital. She loved putting on her “little black dress” and dancing. She enjoyed roses in the summer time, going to the state fair, and trips to Brown County in the fall. Mary was a role model for everyone who knew her. She was sweet, kind, and persevered through life. She left a true legacy for everyone who knew her. Mary was preceded in death by her parents; four sisters and a brother; her husband, Donald, and her grandson, Brian Brush. Mary had two daughters, Susan Shaffer (Jack), and Deborah Darling (Steve). She also had three step-children, Debbie Ford (Tom), Donna Baird, and Danny Welsh. She had four grandchildren, Cindy, Jeffrey, DeAnna, and Brian, along with five great-grandchildren. Graveside services will be private. Simplicity Funeral and Cremation Care is honored to be assisting the family with arrangements.
