Love Emblem

Mary Ann (Kaack) Mackey, 85, of Cedar Lake, Indiana went to be with the Lord on Saturday October 12th, 2019 at Franciscan Hospital.
Friends may greet the family on Tuesday October 15th, 2019, from 3pm to 8 pm at BURDAN FUNERAL HOME, 12901 Wicker Ave. (corner of US 41 and 129th Ave.) Cedar Lake. A funeral service will be held on October 16th, 2019 at 10 a.m. at BURDAN FUENRAL HOME CHAPEL, Pastor Bill Marshall, officiating. Interment to follow at German Methodist Cemetery.
Mary was born in Grant Park, Illinois on November 12th, 1933 to Antone and Alvina Kaack. She married Harry Mackey on November 22nd, 1951 and they had 11 children together.
Mary was a homemaker and enjoyed needlework, crafts, sewing and making rugs. She also enjoyed canning, spending time with her family and most of all, holding babies. Mary always put the needs of others before her own and had a very generous, loving heart. Her quiet sense of humor brought a smile to everyone's face, including playing inch me, pinch me with the grandkids.
The sure way to put a smile on Mary's face was for her to cuddle and play with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren (AKA, the baby whisper).
Mary is survived by 10 of her 11 children, Larry (Anna) Mackey, John Mackey, Ray Mackey, Judy Mackey, Susan (Steve) Sommers, Betsy (Morgan) Merriman, Sally (Pat) Mackey, Mark Mackey, Tina (Tom) Brite, and Paul Mackey as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Mary is preceded in death by her loving husband Harry W. Mackey, Sr., her eldest son Harry W Mackey, Jr., as well as her numerous siblings.
Mary will be fondly remembered by her family and friends.
