A memo­r­ial ser­vice for Mary will be held on Feb­ru­ary 3, at the Koepsell-Mur­ray Fu­neral Home in Beaver Dam, at 1 p.m. A vis­i­ta­tion for Mary will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Mary was born to Ralph and Murl Hutchins on July 11, 1946.
She was united in mar­riage to William Fog­a­rty on May 4, 1968, in Hazel Park, MI. To­gether they raised two daugh­ters.
She re­ceived a Bach­e­lor of Arts from Wayne State, MI and a Mas­ter’s in pas­toral min­istry from Mary­grove Col­lege, MI. Mary and Bill moved to Wis­con­sin in 2004 to be closer to their grand­chil­dren.
Mary was a mem­ber of Edge­wood Com­mu­nity Church in Waupun. While Mary never lead a con­gre­ga­tion, she en­joyed spread­ing God’s Word. Mary loved to make cards and send them to any­one whom she felt needed en­cour­age­ment. She had a soft spot for the shut-ins and made sure they knew she was think­ing about them often.
Mary loved to travel. Mary had a pas­sion for writ­ing. It was her writ­ing that helped get her through some of her final days, in which she com­piled two books.
Mary is sur­vived by her lov­ing daugh­ters, Jen­nifer (Brad) Freriks, and Amy (Bret) En­slen; six grand­chil­dren; her sis­ter, Patty Ar­se­nault; and brother Scott (Sandy) Hutchins. She is fur­ther sur­vived by other rel­a­tives and friends.
Mary was pre­ceded in death by her par­ents; her lov­ing hus­band, Bill; and her sis­ter, Linda Lee.
In lieu of flow­ers, memo­ri­als in Mary’s honor may be di­rected to Edge­wood Com­mu­nity Church in Waupun.
