Mary Halstead, 84, lost a brief battle with cancer and passed away peacefully with her children at her side on Thursday, October 13th.

Mary was born in Duluth on September 14, 1938, to George and Yvonne Vosika. She graduated from Duluth Cathedral in 1956 and took business classes at UMD. Mary worked at various jobs but spent the majority of her working career as an executive secretary at UMD.

Mary enjoyed playing games with her family and friends. She was a very competitive game player who won more times than she lost. She was an excellent cook and an avid reader.

Mary loved her family, her cabin on Spring Lake and her cats.
