Mary K. Molaski

GREEN BAY, Wis. - On this day, July 28, 2020, the gates of Heaven opened for Mary K. Molaski. She entered soon after the sun came up. Heaven now has a fantastic guardian angel. Mary K. left this earth from St. Mary's Hospital in Green Bay, after fighting for eight days from congestive heart failure.

Mary K. was born in Marquette, Michigan, to Sara and Isadore Goulette on Dec. 28, 1944. She attended grade school at St. Michael's Elementary School and was a member of the Bishop Baraga High School Class of 1962. She never missed a reunion.

Following high school, she attended Northern Michigan University and then was employed by Michigan Bell Telephone Company.

On Oct. 2, 1971, she was married to Russ Molaski at St. Peter Catholic Cathedral in Marquette. Following their wedding, they moved to Green Bay. She worked at Wisconsin Telephone Company, until the birth of their first child in 1973. Mary K. later worked at Nelson Minahan Realty, HJ Martin and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

In 1975, she was blessed with a son. Now there is Sara and Matt. Raising children was her strong point. She was a volleyball mom, a cheerleading mom, a band mom and a hockey mom. Her life was centered around her children.

She was a member of Sts. Edward and Isidore Catholic Parish in Flintville.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Sara and Isadore Goulette; her mother and father-in-law Edward and Mae Molaski; and sister-in-law Mary Molaski. Also preceding was son-in-law, Tim Lux.

Mary K. is survived by husband, Russ Molaski; children, Sara Lux and Matt (Jessie) Molaski.

She will be, as she was when she was here, a guardian angel of her three grandchildren, Cole, Jake and Sydney Molaski. She will be there at the ice rink, the soccer field, the swimming pool and every concert. Her grandchildren were the apple of her eye.

Due to COVID-19, a private family funeral will be held at a later date. Online condolences are welcome at

The family would like to thank the ER, the 5th Floor and ICU staffs at St. Mary's Hospital, as well as the doctors and nurses of hospice for the care and compassion.
