Mary Warner passed away on Thursday, December 21, 2023 after a courageous fight with cancer. Mary was born on September 2, 1965 in Cobleskill, grew up in Middleburgh and graduated from Middleburgh Central School in 1984.
After graduation, Mary lived in Central Bridge for a short time before moving in with her best friend and the love of her life, Jim, in 1985. They married in 1991 and brought two sons into the world. Mary took the job of motherhood very seriously, teaching both of her sons math and reading skills before they entered Kindergarten. She never hesitated to sacrifice her own wants so that her boys would have everything they needed to succeed. She cried when they went to college, because she missed them. And she cried when they graduated because she was so proud of their accomplishments. Family meant everything to Mary and she would always share how lucky she was to have such a great one.
Mary was also a very hard worker, starting at her first job when she was just twelve and working right up through this year, amidst fighting the cancer. And at only five foot one and a scant hundred pounds, Mary could easily disarm the biggest and angriest customers at work with her dark humor, quick wit and charm. She did get to see the completion of her new home and planned to retire to her little piece of paradise on Ecker Hollow.
Mary loved all kinds of music, from attending rock concerts, live music or just a guitar at the campfire, music made her happy and she passed that love to her sons as well.
There is much more to Mary’s story but little room here to even scratch the surface. She loved deeply and was loved deeply and respected and will sorely missed be everyone whose lives she touched.
Cherishing her forever are her husband: Jim of Middleburgh; her sons: Jimmy of Albany and Michael (Izzy) of Middleburgh; her mother: Marlene Brown of Middleburgh; her sister: Kim Teeuwe (Dave Ellis) of Middleburgh; her brothers: Brian Teeuwe of South Carolina and Michael Teeuwe of Middleburgh; her mother and father-in-law: Diane and David Warner of Middleburgh; and many other family members and friends. Mary was predeceased by her father: Stephen Teeuwe.
