County Medical Center Skilled Nursing Facility on April 26, 2014. She was born June 28, 1925, in Spalding, MI to Leon and Flora (Nault) Poupore.

Mary was known for her hospitality; hosting family for many occasions. Her French Meat Pie was legendary. Her love of decorating, crafts, and flower gardening has been passed down through the family. We are all the richer for having had her with us. Ron and Mary traveled all over the United States and loved spending time at their camp. After living in Spalding, MI for most of her life, Mary moved to Sturgeon Bay to be near her daughter. She continued to bring joy to her family all the days of her life.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Ronald on January 5, 1993, four sisters, Irene, Esther, Bernadette, Beatrice and five brothers, Clifford, Willard, Ervin, Joseph and Clarence.
