Mary L. Isaacsen, 78, of Palmyra, WI passed away on Monday, October 2, 2023 at Waukesha Memorial Hospital with her loving family by her side.
She was born on October 13, 1944 in Whitewater, WI the daughter of Frank and Caroline (Rebenstorf) Kligora. She grew up in the Whitewater area and graduated from Whitewater High School in 1962. On February 18, 1967, Mary was united in marriage to David P. Isaacsen at the Palmyra United Methodist Church and the Lord blessed their union with four sons, Mark, John, William, and Michael. Mary and David enjoyed 28 years of marriage together until David’s passing in 1995. Mary was very involved in her local community. She was a member of the Palmyra Lioness for a number of years and was a long-time member of the Palmyra United Methodist Church. She also served as Sexton of the Hillside Cemetery of Palmyra for more than 50 years and took pride in caring for the cemetery. Mary was a caring person and never hesitated to help a friend or neighbor in need. Above all else in Mary’s life was her love for her family. She was a loving wife and mother and a very proud grandmother. Some of her best times were spent crafting, baking cookies and making Christmas wreaths with her children and grandchildren. In her younger years, she and David made many wonderful memories in Northern Wisconsin. Mary was a good lady and she will be deeply missed by those she leaves behind.
