On Thursday, December 31, 2020 Mary Dubke, loving mother and grandmother passed away at the age of 87.
Mary was born May 26, 1933 in Detroit, MI. She spent most of her adult life living in Taylor, MI with her late husband, Marlin Dubke. It is there she raised her 3 children, daughter Michelle Voineag (Robert Ruokolainen), her late son Eric Dubke (Julie Dubke) and youngest son John Dubke.
She also leaves behind her beloved granddaughter, Erica Dubke as well as step grandchildren, Jeffrey Duncil Jr., Jacob Duncil, Jesse Duncil & Jenna Ruokolainen.
Mary was an excellent seamstress, she loved to garden, growing loads of fresh vegetables, to bake,
she was especially known for her pies, and was quite the shopper in her day. Volunteering, using her talents, was time well spent.
Mary made friends easily and had many throughout her life. She had a strong sense of duty to be there for others, both friends and family during the toughest of times. She sadly struggled with Alziemer's for many years. Just days before her passing her picture was included in the Detroit Free Press feature article on the Year In Pictures 2020.
I was so sorry to hear about Mary passing (and even sorrier about Eric). My whole family sends their condolences to you at this time. May God give you comfort knowing that your mom lived a full life. Susan (Hammer) Ball
