Mary Ann Secor, 83, of the town of Farmington, passed away at her home on Saturday, March 31, 2012, with her family at her side.

She was born on July 31, 1928, in Lincoln, Nebraska, the daughter of the late Carl and Agnes (Korbel) Feelhaver, and on September 12, 1948, she was united in marriage to Gerald “Jerry” Secor in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Jerry preceded Mary Ann in death on October 25, 2002.

Mary Ann was full of life. She was a loving wife, a devoted mother and a confidante, life coach and mentor to her eleven grandchildren.

When her children were older, Mary Ann took night classes at U.W. Milwaukee and earned her degree in education. She was a substitute teacher for several years.

Mary Ann had a passionate interest in family history and traveled across and outside the country in search of family information. She spent hours amongst gravestones and dusty court records in search of answers. She will fondly be remembered as one who loved flowers, bargain hunting at rummage sales and daily crossword puzzles.

Mary Ann was an active member of Peace United Church of Christ in Kewaskum, the Wisconsin Historical Society, the Farmington Historical Society, the Czechoslovakia Genealogical International Society, the League of Women Voters, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, Moraine Chorus and the Kewaskum Youth Scholarship Fund “KEYS” committee.

Funeral services for Mary Ann were held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4, 2012, at Peace United Church of Christ, 343 First Street in Kewaskum. Rev. Eric Kirkegaard officiated and cremation followed the traditional services. Burial of her cremains took place in the church cemetery.

Relatives and friends called at the church on Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until the time of services.

My sympathies to the entire family. Mary Ann was a remarkable woman. Got to know her when Sandy & I were grade school friends and we spent time at the house and also through church in recent years. May her spirit live on! Sharon (Land) Zolp

My sympathy to the entire family of Mary Ann. My mother, Betty Reed Manguson, and Mary Ann were friends from school days in Fort Dodge. My Mom would speak very fondly of school days and memories of good times with Mary Ann then and from recent times at reunions. Sincerely, Charlene Kelley
