Mary was born March 26, 1912 to Thomas and Anna Mary (Fix) Daschle on the family farm near Onaka, SD. She attended school in Onaka and then helped on the family farm.

She married Joseph Uhrich at Onaka on June 27, 1932. They made their home on a farm south of Roscoe until moving to Aberdeen in 1956. In Aberdeen, she worked as a seamstress for several different companies. Mary continued to live and work in Aberdeen following Joseph's death in 1981. She retired from Aberdeen Interiors in 1992 at the age of 80.

In the fall of 2001, Mary moved to the Westwood Assisted Living Center in Roscoe. She spent the last three years living at the Hosmer Senior Citizen's Home.

She was very active in life and gave freely of her time and talents. She was a past member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church where she served on the Altar Society and was a past member of the Catholic Daughters. She was currently a member of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Roscoe.

Mary was thoughtful and kind to her family and friends. She never missed an opportunity to send birthday greetings and gifts. She shared her sewing and crocheting creations with all of her family.

She enjoyed visiting with others and if a game of Bridge or Pinochle could be found she would be a part of it. Over the years, Mary was member of several Bridge Clubs. She also loved gardening and flowers. She was very proud of receiving the yard of the week award years back in Aberdeen.

Mary died Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at the Senior Citizen's Home in Hosmer.
