Mary Ann Vukelich, 84, was born and raised in McKinley.
With deepest sorrow, we share the passing of our dearly loved Mom and Grandma. She left us surrounded with the deep love and prayers of her family.
Mary Ann was a dedicated and loving teacher both by profession and in life. Our family was very blessed to have her in our lives. Special warm thanks to the staff at Meridian Manor in Wayzata for their loving care of our Mom.

Mary Ann is also survived by her siblings, Anthony Ahlin, Gen (Stan) Laskowski, Rose (Bob) Kozel, and Michael Ahlin.
Mary Ann was preceded in death by Edward, her loving husband of 55 years.
