Mary was born in St. Cloud to Norbert & Theresa (Chirhart) Neis. She married Robert Neiman on July 27, 1957. Mary was employed as a medical secretary at the VA Medical Center in St. Cloud for 30 years. She held various positions including the secretary to the director before retiring in 1992. She was very proud of her career and she was there to serve the veterans. Mary was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, St. Anthony’s Christian Women, a life member of VFW #4847 Auxiliary and a member of the Waite Park American Legion #428 Auxiliary. Mary was a genealogy “buff” and was proud having traced Bob’s lineage back to the Revolutionary War. She enjoyed rides in the car especially long road trips and her loving four legged companion “BB”. Mary had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
