Mary F. Wagner, of Warsaw, passed away at her residence surrounded by family at 2:52 p.m. on Friday, April 28, 2017 at the age of 74.
She was born on June 27, 1942 in Warsaw to Jay Shue and Frances (Shaffer) Shue. On June 15, 1962 she was married to Robert “Bob” Wagner, who survives in Warsaw.
Mary grew up on Winona Lake for 20 years and was a 1960 graduate of Warsaw High School. She then attended Ball State University for a few years. She was a hard and dedicated worker and was employed for 20 years at Central Shoe Store, worked at R.R. Donnelley & Sons of Warsaw for 10 years, even had her own house cleaning service for over 30 years, and she and her husband Bob own Maverick Motorcycle Shop.
After she married Bob in 1962 she moved to the farm where they raised three children. Mary enjoyed farm life especially experiencing everything with her children like delivering calves, pigs and sheep and always having chickens. She had stated that she would not have changed it for anything, she enjoyed it all. She was very proud of her children or as she would say “wonderful children” and that they were all doing well in their lives and careers.
Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She enjoyed all the activities they enjoyed such as motorcycles and sports. Mary loved to watch her grandkids when they participated in motocross racing, and she loved to play cards with her friends. She was on the Kosciusko County Fair Board, a member of Tri Kappa, enjoyed hunting mushrooms in the spring and going for walks. Mary was full of life and enjoyed sharing her time with friends and family. She will be forever loved and dearly missed.
