Mary L. Mueller

September 10, 1930 — November 27, 2022

Red Bud, IL

Mary L. Mueller, nee McGhee, 92, of Waterloo, IL, formerly of New Athens, IL, died November 27, 2022, in Waterloo, IL. She was born September 10, 1930, in Harrisburg, IL.

    She is survived by her children Randall (Jean) Dempsey and Lynda (Michael) Reed; grandchildren Michael (Becky) Reed Jr., Robin (Daniel) Pratt and Carol (Jared) Swinney, great grandchildren Anthony Bertram, Kason, Ruby, and Jackson Swinney; 2 sisters; nieces; nephews; and cousins.

    She is preceded in death by her husband Bob Dempsey; parents Fred and Mary (nee Todd) McGhee; grandson Mason Dempsey; 1 brother; and 2 sisters.

    Mary was a member of First Baptist Church - New Athens, IL. She enjoyed spending time loving her family and friends often sharing her delicious homemade cookies, pies, and candies with them. Mary was known for gifting her crocheted blankets, rugs, and especially house shoes. She would trace your foot and you would soon have a pair of the warmest house shoes. Mary was an avid collector of small ceramic shoes having well over one hundred. She enjoyed doing yard work and took great pride in having a neat, beautiful yard.

    Above all, Mary loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. A favorite memory of her will be walking into her home and finding her reading her Bible.

    The family would like to thank the staff at Oakhill assisted living and nursing home for the care and love they gave Mary while living there.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
Promedica Hospice

 At Mary's request, she will be cremated and a family graveside burial will be held.
