After eight years of Piano lessons as a child, Mary played the piano and organ for many church functions in her home town of Mt Clemens, MI, and at Delphos St. Johns. She also accompanied soloists/students at St. Johns until her rheumatoid arthritis kept her from playing later in life. The Piano was one vice she truly loved. She and her late Husband Jack worked closely together building Krendl Machine Co. into a prospering Delphos Manufacturing facility starting in the 1960’s which is still owned and managed by several of the children. Early on in her married life Mary belonged to the Phi Delta Sorority in Delphos as well as the CD of A (Catholic Daughters of America). Her life revolved around raising 11 children and spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She looked forward to their summer vacations, which were always spent at the lake cottage in Parry Sound, Ontario where they developed some great long time friendships.
Thanks to the many wonderful caregivers who looked after our mother for the last few years, especially Ann Marie, Cindy, and Kerrie, Because of their personal care she was able to remain at home for the rest of her days on this earth.
