My favorite Webster food service employee has died.

I just said ‘hi’ to her on Thursday as I was passing through Marletto’s.

Mary used to keep a fruit bowl for me, and always scolded me if I was purchasing French fries.

Mary, may flights of angels sing you to paradise.

“The Webster community extends condolences to the family and friends of Mary Marchlewski, who passed away Saturday night. Mary was a long-time employee for Campus Dining Services, working in catering, at Marletto’s, and the Library Cafe. She was beloved by the many students, faculty and staff she served and worked with over the years, including at Busch Stadium where she was also an usher for her St. Louis Cardinals. A visitation service will be held Wednesday, May 10, 4-9 p.m. at Kutis Funeral Home in Affton. Funeral mass is Thursday, May 11, 10 a.m. at St. Ambrose on the Hill.”
