Mary Sheets

Mary Sheets. Wife, daughter, mother, sister, aunty, and friend. But it doesn’t stop there. Mary was also a caretaker, a dedicated nurse, a free-spirited and fun-loving presence for all. She did have to fight cancer for many years, but she used that time to continue to live life to the fullest, and touched so many lives along the way. Mary loved her family. Her kids were her light, and her husband she adored. Before she retired Mary was a standout nurse - always making sure her patients were comfortable and well cared for. She never missed an occasion to buy the most heart-felt card for her mom, or take a trip with her sisters - the North Shore, concerts, and every fancy restaurant along the way. She was just one of those special people - when Mary was on the guest list it was a guaranteed good time. We will miss our mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunty, and friend dearly, but let’s remember all the joy she brought to our lives while she was here. Mary Christine Sheets (Cornelius) Age 39 of White Bear Lake formerly of Elk River Survived by her husband, Kevin; children, Lillian and Austin; mom, Vicky (Dave) Cornelius-Anderson; sisters, Rachael (Tyler) McLeod, Amy (Bill) Weltzin, Carolyn (Jordan) Boustead and Katherine Cornelius; Grandma “Dear” Jacky Austin; mother-in-law, Kathy Sheets; nieces, nephews, extended family and close friends. A Celebration of Mary’s Life will be held at 11am on Saturday, April 10th at St. Andrews’s Church, 900 Stillwater Rd., Mahtomedi, a pre-registration is required.

Please enter the building at Door 1, from the main parking lot on the east side of the Sanctuary and proceed to the check-in table.
