Mary Hagen, 75

Mary Hagen of Coon Rapids, formerly Kimball, died Monday, Nov. 4, at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids. She was 75.

Funeral Mass will be held at the Church of St. Timothy, 707 89th Ave. NE in Blaine, at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, with visitation one hour prior to service.

Mary Ann Hagen was born Feb. 16, 1938, the second of 10 children, to Gilbert and Christine (Faber) Kuechle. She graduated from Kimball High School in 1956, and moved to Minneapolis where she worked in various clerical positions. She married Alvin Knute Hagen Aug. 19, 1967, in St. Helena Church, Minneapolis. The couple had three children Timothy, Mark and Sara, whom they raised in Minneapolis, Duluth and Blaine. Mary was an active volunteer in the Catholic Church and a top-class bargain hunter throughout her life. She was fortunate to enjoy much hot dish at the many family get-togethers that her closely-knit family held. Following retirement from Ramsey County, she was very happy to be just “Grandma.”

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Margaret Kuechle.

She is survived by her husband; children; and grandchildren Jane, Jessica, Molly, Benjamin, Daniel, Keira, Paige, Angelica and Elijah; and brothers and sisters Robert (and Myrna), Alice (and Dick) Kantor, Marlene (and Donnie) Kalla, John (and Diane), Marvin (and Mary), Dennis (and Jackie), JoAnn (and Gary) Erickson, and Brian; as well as her nieces and nephews.
