She studied accounting at DMACC and provided bookkeeping and tax services at various places. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She enjoyed crocheting and crossword puzzles and was a die-hard Hawkeye fan. MarySue was a magnificent cook and an extreme holiday decorator. She loved visiting lighthouses and going “junking”.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Pete in 2004; her biological parents; her adoptive parents, John V. and Mary Droessler; daughter, Anissa (Buffy); sisters, Jane and Charlotte; brother, Gary; and the father of her children, Gary Smith.

MarySue’s funeral service will be held on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, at Hamilton’s Funeral Home, 605 Lyon Street, Des Moines at 1:00 p.m. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow at Avon Cemetery.
