MADISON/SUN PRAIRIE-Mary L. Carstens, age 64, of Madison and Sun Prairie, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. Mary was born August 24th, 1949 in Buffalo, NY, to William and Virginia (Eichel) Burke. Mary grew up as the only girl in a family with 5 brothers and was always very family oriented. Mary enjoyed painting, drawing, cooking, gardening, going to garage sales, collecting old dishes and knick knacks and sometimes she simply enjoyed sitting outside talking to neighbors and watching the chipmunks.

Mary’s biggest accomplishment and the center of her life were her children. Mary was a very loving mother and grandmother.

Mary is survived by her children, Steven and Jennifer Carstens; and grandson, Billy Carstens. Mary is preceded in death by her daughters, Rebecca and Andrea Carstens. A Memorial Service will be held at ST. MARIA GORETTI CATHOLIC PARISH, 5313 Flad Ave., Madison, at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, with Father Mark Miller officiating. Visitation will be held at the church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service on Tuesday.
