Mary Joan Pleger Life story video
Mary Joan Pleger passed away in Yuma, Arizona on July 9, 2021. She was born in Bemidji, Minnesota to Kenneth Rice and Ruth Lamoreaux on December 27, 1931. She had 3 sisters: Ruth (Tiny), Roberta (Bobby) deceased and Judy. Graduated from high school in Bemidji and joined the Air Force. She retired when she was pregnant with Debbie.

She married Walter Theadore Pleger Jr on June 2nd, 1952 and had 3 children, Debbie (1953) born in Minnesota, Daniel (1955) born in Japan and Suzanne (1958) born in Wyoming.

We traveled the world with our parents to Japan, Morocco and most of the United States. She made and lost too many friends along the way, most she considered family.

Worked civil service where she was introduced to computers in a time when computers filled entire rooms. She was a very hard worker and instilled this quality in her children.

She liked to do crossword puzzles, sew, read, crochet, play bingo and she was always looking for a bargain. She enjoyed watching golf was a fan of the Rockies and the Denver Broncos. I remember one time when mom told me about one day she played golf and ended up cart and all in the lake and got quite the laugh out of it. We have a picture that attests to this.

She is survived by her three children Debra Jean (Pleger) Weddle, Daniel Laurence Pleger and Suzanne Marie (Pleger) Johnson. She also had 9 grand children, 7 Great grand children and 4 great great grand children.
