Mary Ann Burke passed away peacefully on February 4 at the age of 63 after battling chronic illness.

Mary was born in Detroit and was a lifelong resident of St. Clair Shores.

She spent the majority of her life doing what she loved: Serving the public with her beautiful and infectious smile at the Variety Donut Shop until it closed in 2015. You may fondly recall her remembering exactly how you took your coffee, giving your child a bag of donut holes, or insisting she walk your box of donuts out to your car for you. Her presence at the counter could only be described as a transaction of the heart. Mary had a passionate personality and deeply loved making people happy. She was kind and compassionate to every stranger she met and was always generous beyond her means. Mary loved her family and friends with a fierce and undying love. She continuously retold stories of her fondest memories that were created on the adventures she took with the ones she held dear. Mary will be missed beyond belief but she will be forever felt with every cup of coffee, every blooming flower, every trip to Frankenmuth, and most notably through every selfless act of kindness toward humanity.

Mary will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Tamara (Marc) Fecker, son Thomas (Stephanie) Schornak; three grandchildren: Sam and Rose Fecker, and Chloe Schornak; mother Kathryn Burke; brothers and sisters: James Burke, Jeanne (Lynn) Winkelman, Robert (Karen) Burke, and Sharon (Keith) Collins; and niece and nephew: Erik (Jaime) Collins and Ashley Collins. Mary was predeceased by her father James Burke.

The family would like to express their gratitude for the exceptional care of Dr. Michael Yacoub, MD and his team as well as Aggarwal & Associates.

There will be a visitation from 2-9 pm with a 7 pm rosary at A.H. Peters Funeral Home, 20705 Mack Ave., at Vernier Rd., Grosse Pointe Woods on Friday, February 8th. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 9th at 10:00 am at A.H. Peters Funeral Home. Private burial at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township.

In honor of Mary's memory please do something kind for someone else.
