This obituary is written in the first person, apparently by the deceased, Mary Caroline (Mohr) Mulier, herself:

I was born April,1932 in Detroit, and my parents were Harold and Florence Mohr. Growing up in Grosse Pointe in a special neighborhood and excellent schools was very important foundation for the future. I was fortunate to develop friends that lasted a lifetime, which ended peacefully at home March 14.

Mary Mulier obituary 03-16-17

Mary Mulier, 84, passed away on March 14. Her funeral is scheduled for April 1.

After Grosse Pointe High School, I was able to attend Michigan State University graduating with a major in home economics and being a member of Alpha Phi. I then started in a career of retail sales and management that took me to Carson Pairie Scott in Chicago, Hudson’s and Saks Fifth Avenue in Detroit.

While at Sak’s I got re-acquainted with Roger Mulier who was back from the service and working nearby at IBM. Roger and I met in the seventh grade in 1944 and were friends forever. We were married in October 1960 and lived in Grosse Pointe. It was then we had our three boys; Roger Jr, Mark and John within five years of each other.

We enjoyed their growing up, but it involved moving from Grosse Pointe to Darien; Severna Park, Md.; Chagrin Falls, Ohio; and Excelsior, Minn., with two more stops in Grosse Pointe. It became a difficult experience for their early education, however they all earned their college degrees.

We then moved to Osprey, Fl. in 1988 to spend our remaining time enjoying the laid-back environment of sailing, golf and tennis, with Roger ending up working with IBM till retirement. I was a travel agency owner/agent, which resulted in world-wide travel for us for over 10 years. My health took a turn when I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer that lasted over 12 years, with wonderful support from family and friends.

I enjoyed creating and maintaining lifelong friendships with people wherever I lived. I truly loved conversation, playing tennis, bridge, travel, lunches/dinners, with all my friends from many locations that lasted forever.

I leave my husband, Roger; sons, Roger Jr. (Carolyn), Mark and John; grandchildren, Kimberly Mulier and Tyler Mulier in Northbook, Ill.; my sister, Connie Sperry (Don) in Aurora, Ohio; and their two children, David (Dehar) and Sue Bush.

My church service will be held at Church of the Palms Chapel at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 1.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Church of the Palms, 3224 Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota, FL 34239-7201.
