Mary Johanna Paustian, resident of Warren MI died peacefully on Friday, April 3, 2020. Her struggle is over; she has received her Victor’s robe of righteousness.

Mary was born in Detroit, MI on July 19 1938, daughter of the late John and Hazel (Tyler) Mertke. Mary was blessed with three beautiful children of whom she loved and cherished. She provided them a loving home with Christian values. Mary loved traveling, and loved celebrating being an American. Anytime her family was together, Mary was happy. She loved her grandkids and being a grandma more than anything. Mary was a proud member of Hope Lutheran church for 32 years and loved Jesus. She will be dearly missed.

Mary is the loving wife of the late James Paustian; dearest mother of Jeffrey (Heidi) Meisegeier, Kimberly (Anthony) Mikich, and Michelle (the late Matthew) Steffen; cherished grandmother of Ryan, Kevin, Sean, Marcie (Joshua), Makenzie (Mitchell), Tyler (Alexa), Rachel, Bryan, Mitchell (Rebecca), Brandon, Mariah (Jack), Layla, and the late Marcus; adored great grandmother of Hailey, Liam, Logan, Ivyana, and Kingston; dearest sister of Don (Shirley) Mertke and the late John (Nancy) Mertke; and beloved aunt of many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be celebrated at her church, Hope Lutheran of Warren, at a later date. Please continue to keep the family in your prayers and thoughts during this most difficult time. Share memories and photos at
