Mary C. Swenson

Stoughton – Mary C. Swenson, age 81, passed away peacefully with her husband of 65 years by her side on Saturday May 4, 2024, at Azura Memory Care in Stoughton.  She was born January 4, 1943, in Madison, WI to the late Ernest and Alice (Noyce) Culb.  Mary met the love of her life Oscar “Weed” Swenson and they married on August 8, 1959, in Deerfield.  Weed and Mary made their home in Stoughton, raising four children and creating many wonderful memories together.  The two were inseparable, rarely spending time apart.  Mary worked for many years at Skaalen Home as a laundry coordinator.  She loved to clean, organize and shop in secondhand stores.   She cherished every moment she spent with her beloved children and adored grandchildren.
