Mary Lorene Wolfe was born Oct. 6, 1941, in Waukon, Iowa, the daughter of Bill and Beulah (Bloxham) Wolfe. She graduated from high school in Waterville. Mary received a degree in radiology. She was united in marriage to the love of her life, Richard Stenberg, on Oct. 21, 1961, in Harpers Ferry, Iowa. Mary worked as a radiology technician for Mercy Hospital and later worked for 20-plus years for Physicians Clinic of Iowa (PCI) with Dr. Fred Pilcher as an orthopedic nurse. She was an avid fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes, Green Bay Packers and St. Louis Cardinals. But most of all, she loved supporting her family as they participated in basketball, football, baseball, soccer and softball.
She was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Jodine Marie Stenberg; parents; and brother, John Wolfe.
