Mary has devoted the last 10 years of her life to the formation of The Order of Suffering Hearts having published a series of books, Messages from Heaven.

She is survived by her husband of almost 52 years, Greg; children, Fr. Aaron Kuhn of Wadena, Fr. Matthew Kuhn of Alexandria, DeAnna (Michael) Parks of Missouri; grandchildren, Daniella, Meghan, Natalie and Justin; 10 siblings, Deacon John (Judy) Wolak, Terese (Rick) Gillitzer, Ralph Wolak, Elizabeth Andreucci (Ralph Massenberg), Mark (Julie) Wolak, Giles Wolak, Margi Mattfeld, Eva (Richard) Reed, Amy (Russell) Jowers, Roseann Wolak (Michael Gass); and many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and two miscarried children, John and Ann.

Donations to The Order of Suffering Hearts are preferred in lieu of flowers.

A heartfelt thank you to the St. Cloud Hospital, CentraCare Hospice and all those who have provided care and prayerful support.
