KINGSFORD — Mary Katherine Bugni, 72, of Kingsford, passed away Friday, Feb. 7, 2020, at her home.
Mary was born Nov. 2, 1947, in Iron Mountain, daughter of the late Charles and Helen (Palluconi) Lundy. Kenneth Will was more than a step-father to her after Mary lost her father at a young age. She graduated from Iron Mountain High School in 1965 and went on to earn an Executive Secretary degree from Bryant-Stratton School of Business in Milwaukee. On Aug. 17, 1968, she married the love of her life, Thomas Bugni, in Iron Mountain. Together they owned and operated a picture framing business, The Frameworks, for several years. When they sold, Mary continued framing for St. George Glass and Stevens Decorating in Iron Mountain. She was involved in Golden K and Friends of the Braumart.
A devout Catholic, Mary was a dedicated member of St. Mary Queen of Peace Church in Kingsford, and faithfully kept her weekly prayer time at the Adoration Chapel. She enjoyed gardening, skiing, kayaking and camping, and expressed her creativity through jewelry making, beadwork and home decorating. Mary was a dedicated friend and a loving wife, mother and grandmother, always putting others before herself. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.
