Mary (Marian Kirby, Seelow, Maffett) Kime, died of Covid on September 26, 2021, at Lyngblomsten Care Center in St Paul, MN. Mary was a longtime residence of Humbird and Merrillan. Mary suffered a stroke in August of 2019 and was in the Neillsville Care and Rehab until that facility closed in March of 2021, at which time she was moved to St Paul to be closer to family.
Marian was preceded in death by her parents, Archie and Maude Kirby of Humbird; husbands, Arnold Seelow, Richard Maffett, and Chester Kime; son Michael Seelow of Humbird; as well as brothers Pat, Clifford, and Keith; sister Margaret Walker; and great-grandsons Keaton and Ian.
She is survived by her sister Florence Senske of St Paul, MN; daughter Kathy Seelow Lund of Whitehall; daughter-in-law Debbie Seelow of Humbird; grandchildren, Sgt. Major Michael Seelow of Schwand, Germany, Christina Lund of Black River Falls, Geana Lund of Wabasha, MN; six great grandchildren, two great great grandsons, many nieces and nephews who she treasured.
Aunt Mary had the great joy of being chosen to go to Washington, DC on an Honor Freedom Flight in 2015 at age of 90 for her service in WAC, 1945.
Mary loved all things purple, Mumus, trivets, Texas and cows. How we will miss our “Aunt Mary” stories!
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021, at 11 a.m. at the United Church of Christ in Humbird, WI. Burial with military rites will be held in the Mentor Cemetery followed by a lunch at the Humbird Rod and Gun Club.
