Mary Kauphusman

Mary B. Kauphusman, age 89, of Winona, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 2, 2019, at Winona Health, surrounded by her family.

She was born on September 23, 1929, in Winona, to Vincent and Mary (Lappier) Millmann, and was a graduate of Winona Senior High School.  She was united in marriage with James E. Kauphusman on September 3, 1955, in Winona, and he preceded her in death on December 18, 2004.

Mary was a member of the Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka, and will be remembered for her love of playing BINGO, trips to the casino, and as a great conversationalist.  Her family was always her number one priority, and she was the glue that held them all together.  She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who will be deeply missed by all those who loved her.

Mary is lovingly survived by her children: James (Linda) Kauphusman, Kathy (Matt) Wendell, Lynn (Kevin) O’Brien, and Steve (Peggy Walters) Kauphusman; grandchildren: Casey (Mandy) Kauphusman, Kristen Kauphusman, Kylie Wendell, Jake Wendell, Abby Wendell, Cate O’Brien, Maddie O’Brien, Erin O’Brien, Molly (Scott) Stroh, and Jeff (Melissa) Walters; great-grandchildren: Gabe, Liam, Cooper, William, and Calin; as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends, including her extended family at Brookdale Senior Living in Winona.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and a brother: Vincent Millmann.

Visitation will be held from 1:30 PM until 2:45 PM on Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 3 PM.  The Very Reverend Patrick Arens will officiate.  Mary will be laid to rest in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
