Mary Anne Staberg
Age 68, passed away peacefully on January 23, 2023 after a multi-decade battle with cancer. She lived her life with a kind heart, warm sense of humor, and full of compassion. Her ultimate gift was to find the good in life, and when she couldn’t find it, she made it.
Mary Anne cared deeply about the wellbeing of others; connecting with people and providing comfort were her trademark talents. She enjoyed being outdoors, around animals, and in the company of good friends and laughs. She loved nothing more than her family- bringing happiness to their lives was her greatest joy. She was a loving wife to Barry, a wonderful mother to Kelsey and a friend to many.
Preceded in death by parents, Will and Rosemary Lethert; and brother, Larry Lethert. Mary Anne is survived by her husband of 40 years, Barry; daughter, Kelsey; and sister, Kathy Forliti (Dick Forliti), as well as dear family and friends.
Mary Anne showed us what strength and courage looks like. She astounded people with her resilience, and what she was able to endure and overcome. She will be deeply missed, but her kind, caring and courageous spirit will be carried on through all of those that she touched in life.
A celebration of Mary Anne's life will be held on her birthday, Wednesday, July 12th at Bradshaw Celebration of Life Center, 2800 Curve Crest Blvd, Stillwater, MN 55082. Starting at 3pm, additional details to follow.
