Mary Lou (Falstad) Nadler, passed away Sunday, July 1, 2018.
She was born Feb. 16, 1935, in Eau Claire, Wis., to Gilroy and Rosamond (Stussy) Falstad. As a teenager, Mary worked with her sisters and father at Falstad’s Market on Main Street in Eau Claire.
On Feb. 13, 1952, she married David George Nadler in Eau Claire and they began their family. Over the years, they lived in Eau Claire and Chetek, Wis., Aberdeen, S.D., and Des Moines Iowa, while raising seven children. In 1974, Mary and David moved back to Wisconsin, settling in Menomonie.
Mary enjoyed sewing, knitting, baking and cooking and was a long time member of the Women’s Auxiliary where she knitted a multitude of hats for babies born at Myrtle Werth Medical Center.
Mary will be remembered for her sunny disposition, her lefse and rolled-out cookies and the delicious meals she enjoyed fixing for her family and friends. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many. She was so thankful for her longtime friendship with Joanne and Roger Flaten.
