She lived in the US and moved to Canada with her parents when she was old enough to work; she worked many places but eventually ended up in Winnipeg. She worked at Rudy's Inn (downtown Winnipeg) where she later married the owner Rudy Kreutzer on August 5, 1944. After the kids arrived, Mary stayed home but as they got older, she worked for Empress Lanes (coffee shop) Assiniboia Downs (3rd floor food stand Manager) and K-Mart. Mary and Rudy briefly operated The Family Inn Restaurant in Flin Flon where Mary was their excellent cook. Upon returning to Winnipeg, Marry and Rudy became caretakers at their block with Mary only retiring from caretaking at 85 years young. Mary excelled at cooking, baking, crocheting and knitting. Each grandchild has a special something made and all have many memories of Grandma. She was much loved and will be dearly missed.
