Mary Ann, 80, passed away Monday, Sept. 6, 2021, at the Monticello House in Jackson. She was born Jan. 22, 1941, in Friedheim, daughter of Fred W. and Mary “Leona” Riehn Kurre.

Mary Ann attended Perryville High School and was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Friedheim.

She was a faithful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. While Bill enjoyed his shooting matches, Mary loved to be in the kitchen cooking for the men. She was a great seamstress and enjoyed sewing while working at the former Lambert’s Fabric Shop in Cape Girardeau for many years. Mary’s home was always open to family and friends to visit and have a home-cooked meal.

Loving survivors include two sons, Douglas (Carolyn) Brune and Stephen Brune, both of Sedgewickville, four grandchildren, J.D. Brune of Jackson, Ashley (Justin) Koerber and Courtney Brune of Gordonville and Tyler (Dana) Brune of Sedgewickville, three great-grandchildren, Ashtin and Layton Koerber and Drew Thorne, a brother-in-law, Kelly (Betty) Brune of Friedheim and many nieces and nephews.
