Obituary of Mary Pecoraro

Mary Kaye Pecoraro, 65, of Cambridge, Wisconsin passed away on Friday, March 29th, 2024 at her home surrounded by her loving family. Mary was born on August 4th, 1958 in Flint, Michigan to Kenneth and Kathryn (MacKinnon) Nickoley. Mary graduated from Hill-McCloy High School in Montrose, Michigan and received her undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. On October 13th, 1984 Mary married Mick Pecoraro in Flint, Michigan. One of her greatest accomplishments and joys of her life was raising her four children.


Mary loved spending time with her family. She enjoyed all of nature's beauty; hiking on the CamRock Trail, cross country skiing, biking, fishing, golfing, boating, gardening, and walking on the beach collecting shells. She loved relaxing on the lake and taking in countless sunsets over Lake Ripley. Mary spent her time capturing photographs in nature as inspiration for her watercolor paintings. She found happiness collecting crystals and learning about their energy.
