Obituary for Mary Margaret Chmiel

Mary Margaret Chmiel, age 92 of Rhinelander, passed away or as she jokingly referred to it “kicked the bucket “ on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. She was born to the late Marko Draskovich and Katherine (Stanich) Draskovich on September 8, 1925 in Keewatin, Minnesota. She married the late Peter Chmiel on November 15, 1947 in Muskego, Wisconsin.
She was multitalented and had a wide variety of interests over the years but nothing compared to her love for good chocolate.
Mary is survived by her daughters Judy Gray (Paul), Jane Chmiel, Jackie Dorion (John), son Joseph Chmiel, sister Rose (Tootie). She also leaves behind her grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Her son James Chmiel, 4 sisters; Annie, Katie, Violet (Mutz), and Jean (Spotie) and 4 brothers; John (Big John), Charles (Charlie), Robert (Elmer) and David (Jim) preceded her in death.
The family wishes to thank the Country Terrace staff for assisting in her care for the past several years and also to the Hospice staff that helped with her care during the last few weeks.
