Mary Sue Malcore, 77, Neenah, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, Nov. 1, 2021, in the comfort of her own home.  She was born on June 28, 1944, in Green Bay to the late Joseph and Grace (Van Drise) Hruska.  Mary Sue graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in 1962 and later received formal training in New York City as in interior designer.  After completing her training Mary took a position with Svovoda Interiors in Kewaunee.  She was married to her former husband, Wayne Malcore, on Aug. 16, 1969, by her late uncle, Rev. Felix J. Van Drise at St. Francis Solanus Catholic Church in Gresham, WI.  Mary Sue was a true Robinsonville miracle, recovering from what should have been a fatal case of spinal meningitis after her mother and grandmother crawled on their knees around the alter praying the Rosary.  A letter she wrote to Bishop Ricken regarding her miraculous recovery is on display at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.  She was a faithful member of St. Gabriel Parish in Neenah.  Mary Sue combined her deep faith and love for travel through many pilgrimages to the Holy Land in Israel as well as Italy, Greece and Turkey.  Her passion for her beautiful flower garden and animals, especially lambs, will also be remembered.

Mary will be deeply missed by her children, Mark (Angie) Malcore, Joel (Magda) Malcore, Jeff (Tami) Malcore and Lisa Malcore; grandchildren, Jason, Allison, Paul, Nicholas and Madison Malcore (Jared Reimer); brother, Gerard “Jerry” (Laurie) Hruska; niece and nephew, Stephanie and Luke Hruska; her pet companions, Minnie and Marlin; and many other family and friends.
