Frick, Mary Catherine (28 September 1962 - 22 July 2008)

Mary Frick, 45, of Granton answered the call of God, our almighty father, as he summoned his angel home to his waiting arms Tuesday, July 22, 2008. Our angel on earth has gone to watch over us from above as she now sits in the warmth and peace inside the gates of heaven.

Mary Catherine Frick was born Sept. 28, 1962, the daughter of Jacob and Catherine (Golisch) Frick in Oconomowoc. She graduated from Granton High School in 1981 and went on to work for several different businesses in the area as a carpenter. Mary was united in marriage to Steve Breadlau, and they moved to Florida where they lived for 10 years. They later divorced. Mary loved woodworking and the outdoors. She had spent the past nine years employed by WestWood Kitchens of Neillsville building cabinets. Mary was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Granton.
