Mary was a fantastic caring and loving housewife who loved sewing and cooking. She was dearly loved by the community and was an active member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and past parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Pekin. Mary was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who cherished her family, was deeply loved, and will be dearly missed.

Survivors include one son David (fiancé Elizabeth Moss) Hurst of Peoria and one grandson Dylan Hurst of Bartonville.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, husband Melvin, one son William Hurst, one daughter Donna Hacker, and two brothers: Richard Barth and Henry Barth.
