Mary Seymour Obituary

Mary Louise Seymour (Cordes), 71, of Henning Minnesota, passed away suddenly, Monday, January 15, 2024, at her home on West Leaf Lake.

Mary was born April 3, 1952, in Wadena, Minnesota to Harold and Karin (Lund) Cordes. She graduated from Henning High School as co-salutatorian and attended Fergus Falls community college. She moved to Southern California and spent several years working for the telephone company. Returning to Minnesota, Mary settled into a career tending bar at Eddie Webster’s in Bloomington, Minnesota where she met her husband, James Seymour. They resided in Eagan, Minnesota until returning to West Leaf Lake where Mary was a loving caregiver to her ailing father and brother.

Strong-willed, loyal to a fault and fiercely independent, Mary had a wonderful, infectious laugh and positive outlook on life. Possessing a keen memory, she enjoyed reminiscing with others and always had a story to tell. Her happy place was in the kitchen where she loved to cook and bake, generously sharing everything with family and friends. Mary also loved to fish and spend time cruising around the lake with friends on her old yellow pontoon.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and brother Jan Cordes.

She is survived by a sister, Alexandra Kristall of Wood Village, Oregon along with numerous relatives.
