THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Mary E. Massoni
Mary E. (Vander Zanden) Massoni, 74, of Stephenson, Mi., passed away Monday Jan. 6 at Roubal Care and Rehab Center following a 15 month battle with cancer.
Born April 28, 1939 in Chicago, Ill. to the late Henry and Margaret (Wargo) Vander Zanden, she married Leonard Massoni in Chicago on May 10, 1963. She worked as a bank teller, a job she enjoyed, and in her younger years owned and operated a Notion and Flower Store in Toluca, Ill.
She enjoyed playing piano, going to plays and musicals and working with the Menominee Woman's Club on the International committee. Above all, taking care of her grandchildren is what brought her the most joy.
