Mary Stevens Obituary, Cause Of Death – On January 29th, 1929, Mary Stevens made her debut into the world in Hastings. Her name was Aloysius, and her mother’s name was Vernice (Frey). She was her parents’ first child. Mary began her formal education at St. Boniface Catholic School, where she remained until 1947, when she graduated from Hastings High School having completed her secondary education.
Mary was delighted to have been a part of the graduating class of 1947 throughout her whole life, and she took a great deal of joy in sustaining meaningful connections with the other students in her graduating class. Upon the completion of her secondary schooling and receipt of her high school diploma, Mary continued her study at the University of Minnesota, where she ultimately earned a degree in Dental Assisting.
After that, she got work at the Hastings State Hospital, where she remained employed until the hospital’s closing in the year 1978. After that, she obtained work in the sector of human resources in St. Paul, and she remained in that position until the year 1994, when she finally decided to retire.
Mary’s record of volunteering with the Daughters of Isabella and the Regina Hospital Auxiliary stretches back over a significant amount of time. It was well known that she gave her all to both of these organizations. She was an avid traveler both domestically and internationally, enjoyed most sports either as a player or as a viewer (she was an MN GOPHERS Football Fan extraordinaire and season ticket holder from 1950-2015), and treasured her weekend getaways with her girlfriends.
She traveled extensively both domestically and internationally. She would often spend her Saturday mornings sipping coffee at Emily’s Bakery, going to odd luncheons for retirees, and playing dominoes with her female friends on Wednesdays.
It was required to make an appointment in order to speak with her until only a few short years ago because she kept such a crowded schedule. After waiting until she was 56 years old, Mary finally got her driver’s license and bought her very first vehicle. In addition, she did not purchase her first vehicle until she was that age.
