Educated locally, Mary would go on to work for AC Spark Plug for 39 years. She was a proud member of the UAW Local # 651. Mary Ellen was an accomplished seamstress and avid crochet crafter. She was not often found without a crochet hook in her hand. Of all her accomplishments, she was the proudest of building her own home, while raising her four children, and working full time. She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed
Left to cherish her memory are her four children: Mevelyn J. Wolfin, Prudence H. Munger, Donald J. “DJ” Bentley, and Leslie Savage; nine grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; her beloved pet cats; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
