   Mary L. Remy, 90, of Quincy, went to be with her Lord at 10:39 a.m. Saturday (April 7, 2018) in Blessing Hospital.

   Born June 11, 1927 in Quincy, Mary was the daughter of Samuel and Myrtle Williams Bunte. She married Donald K. Remy on July 31, 1949 in Quincy.  Mary and Don celebrated 60 years of marriage before he preceded her in death on April 16, 2010.

   Mary was a member of the Lutheran Church of St. John.  An avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, she rarely missed a game. Mary loved discussing Cardinal players and coaches decisions.  The other team Mary cared so much for were the Quincy Blue Devils. She and Don went to every home game since their high school days until their health no longer allowed them to attend. She then cheered for the Blue Devils from her home.  Mary like to reminisce about her travels she and Don made in their younger days.  She especially loved visiting with many friends and neighbors who became a part of Mary's extended family.  Mary was a cherished mentor to her neighborhood children and grandchildren.

   A 1946 graduate of Quincy High School, Mary was employed at Gardner Denver Company for many years until her retirement in 1983.   

   Survivors include her sister in law, Judy Bunte of Quincy; many loving nieces and nephews; and her many friends and neighbors.

   Mary was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Don; two brothers, Arthur Bunte and a brother in infancy; four sisters, Betty Walz (Robert), Mildred Knorr (George), Helen Bruemmer (LeRoy) and Ruth Calkins (Jim); a niece, Susan McLaughlin; and a nephew, Art Knorr.

   Funeral services will be held Saturday morning at 10:30 in the Lutheran Church of St. John with Pastor Kendall Meyer and Pastor Steve Hayden officiating.  Burial will be in  Greenmount Cemetery.

   Visitation will be Friday evening from 4:00 to 7:00 at the Oasis Room at the Lutheran Church of St. John and Saturday morning from  9:30 until the time of services at the Lutheran Church of  St. John.

   Arrangements are in the care of Zehender Robinson Stormer Cookson Funeral Home.

   Memorials may be made to the Lutheran Church of St. John or the Quincy Humane Society .
