Mary Eddy

April 13, 2019

Mary Magdalene Eddy, 78, died Wednesday, April 10, 2019, at Saint Anne Extended Healthcare in Winona. From her birth on May 27, 1940, to her death Wednesday, she remained compassionate, genuine and loving to all who were in her life. She was born in Winona, to Dolis and Lambert Reglin and lived here all her life. She was an active person who enjoyed playing tennis, riding her bicycle, and was especially fond of garage and estate sales where she was keen on collecting antiques. She was also an avid reader and enjoyed sitting in the sunshine.

After graduating from high school, she went to Winona State University where she pursued her education. While working at a pharmacy in Winona, she met Jim, the love of her life. They remained married for 51 years. After receiving her nursing degree, she went on to work at Community Memorial Hospital for over 25 years. As a registered nurse, she cared for many people, and was respected by her peers.

Left to honor her love and legacy, are her husband, Jim; her two sons, Chad (Phoenix, Ariz.), Christopher (Miami, Fla.) and her granddaughter, Delfina (Miami, Fla.). Mary was preceded in death by her parents. She will be remembered as a beacon of strength, resiliency and inspiration to those who knew her.

The family would like to extend our gratitude to the staff at Saint Anne for their attentiveness and loving care. A private family memorial service was held.

Services entrusted to Fawcett Junker Funeral Home and Crematory, Winona and Fountain City, Wis. Words of sympathy and remembrance can be given at www.fawcett-junkerfuneralhome.com.
