Mary Christine Muller, 81, a Northland resident of Kansas City, MO, and parishioner of St. Therese Catholic Church, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 13, 2023, with her loving family by her side. Mary was born August 15, 1941, to Harold and Margaret (Devilbiss) Crook in Denver, Colorado.
Mary was united in marriage with Ronald Muller on January 9, 1965, in Denver, CO. From this union they had three sons: Ron, Rob and Rick. Mary worked outside of the home as a grocery clerk or professionally hanging wallpaper, but her true passion was spending time with family and raising her three sons. As grandchildren came into the picture, she also enjoyed spending time with them.
Mary enjoyed working complex puzzles; playing cards; crocheting; making macrame home décor; laughing and talking with friends; and traveling with family, especially to beautiful beaches where she could search for seashells and sand dollars, walk sandy beaches, and enjoy the calming tides of the ocean.
She was good at hunting for four leaf clovers and playing One-Armed Bandit at local casinos, as well as Powerball or scratch-off tickets.
Mary is survived by her loving husband, Ron Muller; three sons: Ronald J. Muller (Kirsten), Robert J. Muller (Nancy), and Richard L. Muller (Julie); nine grandchildren: Abby and husband Jonathan, Nicholas and wife Cassidy, Olivia, Lillian, James, Meghan, Ellie, Katie, and Nikki; four great-grandchildren: Joe John, Dean, Toni Rose, and Hattie; two nieces: Cari and Peggy; two nephews: Chris and Pat; a special friend Jeannie whom the Muller family adopted as a daughter and sister; five godchildren: Emma, Michael, Madeline, Ellie, and Andrew; a sister-in-law and lifelong friend Coni Moore. Mary was preceded in death by both parents and two brothers: Tom Crook and Don Crook.
