Mary R. Murn “Mickie” (AKA Mary Bouska) , 93, dies

Mary R. Murn “Mickie” (AKA Mary Bouska) said goodbye to her family on Saturday, April 21, at the age of 93. She died of complications from Parkinson’s disease. She was married to the love of her life Thomas G. Murn for 68 years. They grew up just blocks apart in Ely, Mn, and shared a love of the north woods and fishing together on Fall Lake and on Basswood Lake. They watched the birds and animals from the cabin windows and on walks through the woods, enjoyed reading, saunas and a good fish fillet. Mickie baked and shared the best bread, cookies and rolls with family and friends and spent her life giving to others.
She is deeply loved by her eight children Melanie; Mary Erickson (Steve); Thomas Jr. ( Patty); Shannon Kowalkowski (Dave); Tracy; Patrick (Kathy); Carey Moe (Mark); preceded in death by son Michael “Kelly” (Ginny). Grandma Mickie was adored by 15 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
Faith and her family were the source of her strength. In lieu of flowers, donations to Poor Clares Monastery in Sauk Rapids would be appreciated.
