Mary Niese

Mary Niese, 74 years old, of Dover, IN, passed away on Wednesday, October 20, 2021. Mary found joy in volunteering and was available to many groups within her community. She donated her time to the North Dearborn Pantry, St. Nicholas Catholic School, Think Smart Stay Safe, All Saints Parish Adoration Chapel, and All Saints Parish Atrium. Seeing a new opportunity at St. John’s Summer Festival, Mary started the basket booth which continues to be very successful.  Many people got to know Mary through her work as a bank teller at UCB Bank in St. Leon before it became Civista. In her spare time, Mary enjoyed reading, working in the yard, and painting landscapes. Mary loved being with others and liked to show her appreciation by cooking and baking for her family and friends. She adored her grandchildren and thoroughly enjoyed spoiling them. Mary was a true Dover native. Daughter to Bernita & Walter Weekly, she was born at home on Ennis Ridge. Several years ago, Mary & her husband, Joe, built their home on the exact same spot as her childhood home. Mary completed her circle of life in Dover and passed away in her home.

Mary will be deeply missed by her husband of 51 years, Joe, and children Brenda (Todd) Spade of Florida, Brian (Kendra) Niese of Dover, and Katie (Randall) McMasters of Dover; and grandchildren Soren Koch-Hutchinson, Elly Niese, Owen Niese, William McMasters, Alana McMasters. Mary is preceded in death by her parents Bernita & Walter Weekly and brother Joe Weekly.

A memorial service for Mary will be held at a later date. Friends are encouraged to visit to offer condolences through the online guestbook. Memorials can be made to All Saints Parish or North Dearborn Pantry. Memorials will be accepted at the future memorial service or can be mailed to Andres-Wuestefeld Funeral Home at 25615 State Rt. 1, Guilford, IN 47022.
