Obituary for Mary Duffney Wohlers

Mary Duffney Wohlers
May 10, 1938-October 31, 2018

Mary died in Phoenix, Arizona at the age of 80 years. She was born in Minnesota to Rachel and Raymond Duffney. Her early life was lived in Faribault, MN. She graduated from Bethlehem Academy High School. In August of 1958 she married Charles R. Wohlers of Faribault and in June of 1959 they became parents of twins Marshall and Carla. The family moved to Sioux Falls, SD where Charles was employed as a jet mechanic at the South Dakota Air National Guard and Mary was employed at Northwestern Bell as a telephone operator. Mary was a devoted mother and grandmother. In 2015 she moved to the Phoenix AZ area to be near her children and grandchildren for the final 3 years of life. It has been said by everyone that Mary was a beautiful woman of enduring determination and humility. Grateful for sharing her journey in this life and looking forward to sharing eternity alongside her are her children Marshall Wohlers (Jan) of Desert Hills, AZ ; Carla Wohlers Stuart of Peoria, AZ; grandchildren Charlie and Alex Wohlers of Phoenix, AZ; great-grandson Beau Wohlers of Phoenix, AZ; younger sister Donna Duffney Graff of Colombia, SC. Heartfelt appreciation beyond words go to the staff and caregivers who became adopted family at Rock Creek Memory Care, and to the expertise of Chaplain Sonia, Nurse Jenny, and Social Worker Christina with Suncrest Hospice.
Mary was preceded in death by her father Raymond W. Duffney in 1945, her husband of 30 years Charles R. Wohlers in 1987, her mother Elizabeth Rachel Oppegard Duffney in 2005, and son in law Vincent Stuart in 2014.
Memorials are to go in tribute of Mary to Bethlehem Academy 105 3rd Ave SW Faribault, MN 55021 or or to the National Alzheimer’s Association.
