Mary Joan Dudzinski

June 25, 1952 ~ April 29, 2022 (age 69)


Mary Jo Dudzinski, age 69 of Cottage Grove, passed away peacefully, after a long journey with Alzheimer’s.

Mary Jo loved being a mom! She will always be remembered as the glue that held her family together. She enjoyed attending and participating in her children’s school and sporting events and was the one who planned all the family get-togethers. She was the life of the party, a social butterfly, and became instant friends with everyone she met. Mary Jo was also a devote Catholic.

Mary Jo is survived by her children, Donny (Michelle), Chris (Tina), and Michelle (Jordan); grandchildren, Jack, Emma, Taylor, Brandon, Parker, Logan, and Charlotte; siblings, Michael, Sue (Dick), Patty (Bert), Sharon (Herbie), Ricky, Lynn (Mike), and Johnny (Cindy); and many loving nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Jerry, and her parents.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 12pm at The Church of St. Rita (8694 80th St S, Cottage Grove, MN) with visitation beginning at 10am. All are invited to join Mary Jo's family at the VFW Post 8752 (9260 E Point Douglas Rd, Cottage Grove, MN) immediately following the memorial service.
