Mary Rose Koehler Obituary

Mary Rose Koehler, 64, of Burnsville, Minnesota, passed away on January 17, 2024, at Cerenity Marian care facility in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

She was born on February 11, 1959, in Saint Paul, MN. Mary Rose is survived by her daughter, Stephanie Roettger (John); daughter, Jennifer Nelson; mother, Mary Koehler; brother, John Koehler; sister, Laura Lium (Bob) and sister, Nancy Koehler. She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene, and many other friends and relatives.

Mary Rose attended Park Senior High in Cottage Grove, MN, and later went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from American University. She worked many jobs throughout her life but really found joy in speaking with many of her customers while working for Ecolab in Saint Paul, MN.

She enjoyed participating in church activities throughout her life. Since Covid, one of her favorite things to do on Sundays was to stream services from Word of Peace in Rogers, MN. Her faith was an important part of her life.

Mary Rose loved animals. It was not uncommon for her to bring in a stray cat now and again, and she really enjoyed participating in charity events for animal shelters.

Mary loved holidays and getting together with family to celebrate. Her favorite may have been Halloween, as decorating her home with her daughter was something they both looked forward to every year.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, with a social hour from 3-4pm and service from 4-5pm, at The O'Halloran & Murphy Funeral Home, 8700 Valley Creek Road, Woodbury, MN 55125, 651-702-0301.
