Mary Boston Office Manager & Administrative Assistant (but we like to call her "Sarge"

Mary grew up in River Falls, WI on her family’s farm and graduated from River Falls High school. She met and began dating Bill in 1971 while he was attending the UW-River Falls. They married in 1973 at St. Marys Catholic Church, before moving to Stevens Point. Upon returning, Bill and Mary began a family of their own. She was lucky enough to dedicate her life to her family until her children were in school full time.


Mary had worked several jobs before accepting the opportunity to work for the family business. She started out at the funeral home attending to the bookkeeping. Due to her outgoing and friendly personality, Mary quickly became instrumental in multiple roles within the business. Mary is now a full-time office manager; administrative assistant; preneed associate; resource supervisor; and above all, she is a friendly face and a compassionate voice.


Outside of work, Mary enjoys the company of her grandchildren. She feels that spoiling them rotten is not only a grandparent’s privilege, but a right. Mary also loves camping, flower gardening, dry walling, and painting. Besides being a compulsive cleaner, Mary is committed to her faith and has a passion for singing. She is a member of St Stanislaus Catholic Church and sings on the Celebrations Choir. She is a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, AMVETS Auxiliary 1051, and was a past president.
