Mary Lou Wokersien Obituary

     Mary Lou Anne Wokersien, 89, of Twin Falls, Idaho, passed away on Thursday, March 14, 2024 surrounded by her husband and their five children.

     Mary Lou was born to Ivan and Theresa Davis in Cabarton, Idaho on May 7, 1934.  In 1938 her family moved to Twin Falls, Idaho. Soon after, they relocated to Fairfield, Idaho which became their permanent home surrounded by fertile farm land and the beautiful Soldier Mountains.   It was there where she would meet her high school sweetheart and future husband Kent Wokersien. After graduating high school, she attended the University of Idaho and Business College in Utah.  

     In 1954, Mary Lou and Kent were married. She then joined Kent in South Bend, Indiana until he graduated from The University of Notre Dame. After Kent’s graduation they lived in Massachusetts, Maryland, Missouri, and Kansas. In 1968 they returned back home to Idaho where they eventually settled and raised their family in Twin Falls.   Mary Lou and Kent were married for over 69 years and had five children - Kathy, Maria, Betsy, Jeff, and Carolyn.

     Mary Lou was a fiercely dedicated stay-at-home mother. She loved volunteering her time at school, various charities, and church functions. One of her best qualities was her ability to host parties for family and friends, and often at a moment’s notice. She was truly happiest when she was surrounded by her loved ones to share time and celebrate together. Her most treasured times were spent at their cabin north of Fairfield. 

     Mary Lou was predeceased by her parents and her siblings James Davis, Dorothy Humphrey, John Davis, Lalla Grommet, Richard Davis, and her grandson Justin Watson. 

     She is survived by her husband - Kent; their five children - Kathy (Andy) Cover, Maria (Randy) Watson, Betsy (Rod) Stephens, Jeff (Jenny) Wokersien, Carolyn (Brad) McNew; her twelve grandchildren - Tyler (Liana) Barron, Danielle Brierley-Chavez, Travis Watson, Kim Stephens, Alex (Emily) Watson, Annie (Mason) Andes, Brandon (Larissa) McNew, Brady (Kylie) McNew, Haley (John) McKinnis, Colten McNew, Hunter Wokersien, Hattie Wokersien; and numerous great-grandchildren.

     The family would like to express their gratitude to the entire staff at Canyons Retirement Community-Assisted Living. Their love and dedication truly brought peace and comfort to our mother during her entire stay. We also want to thank Heritage Home and Hospice for their care and support given to our mother during these past six months. 

     A private family graveside service will be held at the Mountain View Cemetery in Fairfield, Idaho at a later date. 

     In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions be made to the Fairfield Senior Citizen Center or a charity of your choice. 

     Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel.
