Mary M. Lumberg, 88, of Ashland, went to be with her Lord March 14, 2019, at Morning Pointe of Russell. She was born July 18, 1930, in Buffalo, NY. She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, two sisters, and her beloved husband, Frank.
Mary was a devoted wife, mother, and daughter who dedicated her life to her family. She worked part-time at Liturgical Publications in St. Louis, Missouri, and in retail at Star’s Fashion World in Ashland for several years. Mary also enjoyed helping people, and volunteered at King’s Daughters Hospital in Ashland. She loved nature—especially birds—and enjoyed gardening, crafts, and making her home into a work of art. She loved to laugh, and possessed a sense of humor and a wit that would often catch you off guard.
She is survived by two daughters, Heidi Lumberg of Denver, Colorado and Julie Lumberg-Osborne of Louisa; her dear son-in-law Paul Osborne; and numerous extended family members and friends.
At Mary’s request there will be no funeral services.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Mary’s memory be made to Community Hospice in Ashland or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A woman of strong faith and gentle compassion, her memory will be treasured by those whose lives she touched.
