Mary Ellen Wolfe, age 68, of Winona, passed away on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, at the Whitewater Health Services in St. Charles, MN.
She was born on May 31, 1952, in Pine Creek, WI, to Melvin and Rita (Hermann) Wicka, and was a graduate of the Arcadia High School. She married Joseph Wolfe, and they later separated.
Mary was employed as a librarian at the St. Stanislaus School in Winona for over twenty years, and later worked as a daycare provider until 2012.
She will be remembered for her love of reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, and she enjoyed spending time outdoors enjoying nature and the world around her.
