Mary E. Dulski


Mary Elizabeth (Lachowitzer) Dulski was born May 11, 1936, in Perham, MN to John and Clara (Schuessler) Lachowitzer. She was baptized and confirmed at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Dent, MN. She attended rural country school in Dent through eighth grade and graduated from Perham High School in 1954. Mary worked as a waitress at the Eagles Café in Perham where she met Chester Dulski. She went on to marry Chester in 1958 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church and together raised five children. The couple owned and operated their dairy farm in Corliss Township until Chester died in 1983.

In addition to being a homemaker, Mary worked for RDO, Perham Bakery, and Kenny’s Candy. Mary loved to play games of any kind, especially yard games, play bingo, put together puzzles, and enjoy a good movie. She also enjoyed traveling, with Alaska being her favorite.
