I was saddened to have Mom (Loretta) call and tell me that Mary had passed. Mom and She were good freinds and no longer being able to visit her will be very hard. Your Mom was a sweet lady and always had something to smile at. May she rest with the angels with your dad nearby. Always, Brenda

Mary Sass Czmowski, your grandmother, was a sister to Martha Sass Pischke, my maternal grandmother. Paul Sass was their brother. Paul’s youngest child, Richard, married your aunt Patricia. When my mom, Florence Pischke Lippert, was still alive, we would come to SD quite often for family reunions. There was always a large crowd of relatives when everyone got together. One of the friendliest people in those crowds was your mom, Mary. Even as an adult, I enjoyed visiting with your mom. She was a very caring person with a loving heart. I’m grateful that I got a chance to know her. Cherish your wonderful memories. Many prayers are being sent your way. God bless you. Take care. Mary Lippert Miller, Bismarck ND
