Mary Stimler/Rogers (nee) Gadrow, of Valparaiso, IN (formerly of Hammond) passed away at the age of 66. She is survived by husband of five years Steven Rogers, children Timothy (Amanda) Stimler & Tara Cherry, grandchildren Hailey Courtney, Autumn Stimler, and Bryan Cherry, and her loving furbabies Honey and Sweetie. She was preceded in death by husband of 36 years Gary Stimler, father Theodore Gadrow, mother Patricia Kucera, sister Adelade (Ken), Michelle Macias, and grandparents Anthony & Helen Fehring.
A 1974 Hammond Tech Graduate, Mary loved big get-togethers with family and friends. The more the merrier. She enjoyed loud music and fast cars. She also enjoyed ceramics, crocheting, fishing, gardening, poker, and board games, especially chinese checkers on grandma & grandpa's old board. Mary was starting preparations on the 10th anniversary of Gary's passing when she found out she was sick. She will be laid to rest next to Gary.
Donations to Hospice of Calumet in her honor would be appreciated.
