The family of Mary E. Kauphusman has received the following condolences.

I am so heartbroken that I'm just learning of Mary's death now. She, my "other Mom," was a huge part of my young life, as was all of the Kauphusman family.  I will love you all forever.

I am sorry to hear of your loss.  I have lots of great memories of the Kauphusman house.  Playing football in the street with Johny against Tony and Nick.  Going to Johny's birthday parties.  Maria giving Johny advice on all sorts of things.  Gina and Johny having spirited discussions about many items.  Mary was such a loving Mother to all of her children. She and John were a great team. I admired their fortitude through all of the health struggles they faced.  May your days ahead be filled with wonderful memories of Mary.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Love,   Rich Holland

Maria, John and Kauphusman family:
