Mary Lee Bocek Hurt

05/16/1940 – 10/05/2022

A limb has fallen from the family tree.

I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.

The good life I lived while I was strong.

Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.

Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.

Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.

Continue traditions, no matter how small,

Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls.

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin,

Until the day comes, we’re together again.

She is survived by her husband, Jonnie Hurt, brother Les Bocek (Joan), sister Florence Berti (August), sister Donna Vaughn (Johnny), children Garry, KC, Ivalou, Patsy, and Polly, and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, all of whom she loved with her every breath even past her last.
