Mary Marlene Jundt was born June 19, 1931, in Plainview, to Fred and Mabel (Horn) Schaefer. She graduated from Creighton High School in 1949. Mary enjoyed working at the Knox County Courthouse in Center in the county clerk’s office.
On April 16, 1950, Mary married Bruce Jundt at Eden Valley Lutheran Church in rural Plainview. They had five children: Diane, Sue, Kay, Michael and David.
Mary worked at several area nursing homes, including Creighton, Plainview and Stanton, as well as worked at the Creighton Hospital. Most of all, she worked hard raising five children and being a farmwife. Any activity Mary could do that was related to her children, she volunteered for. These activities included Cub Scout den leader, Bluebird leader and band parents.
Mary was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church in Creighton. She took pride in her ability to remember shorthand until her recent years. She was a wonderful cook, loved to visit and enjoyed watching TV. Mary spent many hours with her loving Chihuahua, “Poncho,” on her lap.
