Mary M. Nordby, 60, of Villa Park, IL formerly of Elmhurst, IL beloved wife of 43 years to James Nordby, loving mother to Gretchen, Aric and Kurtis, beloved grandmother to Angelica, Marco and Roque, dear daughter of Kazimierz and Erika Klich, loving sister to Edd and wife Stella, Irene and husband Ed, Tina and husband Sal, Lidija and husband Arno, Lori and husband Steve. Affectionate Aunt, Great Aunt and Great-Great Aunt too many nieces and nephews. Adoring too many aunts, uncles and cousins.

An accomplished gardener, cook, baker and homemaker. Mary was devoted to her family especially her four (4) boys, as she would say but always remembered her two (2) beautiful angels, her girls. Super fan of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears never missing to watch them with her boys. Mary was always generous with her time and her heart. In addition to her family, Mary’s other passion was her garden; she could grow anything from a little sprig to the most beautiful plant or flower amongst her butterfly bushes and her angels.

Mary will be forever remembered for her great advice, caring nature, healing hands, devotion to family, contagious laugh, undying faith, and love of God and her potato salad. However, most of all she is remembered for her courageousness and her fighting power.

We cannot hold her hands and hug her forever. God has taken her to her permanent home in heaven; but her beautiful memories will always linger. In our minds.. in our hearts, she was heaven sent

Rest in peace our “rock” until we see each other again.
