Obituary for Mary E. zurBurg

Mary Elizabeth (Martin) zurBurg passed away March 11, 2020. Mary was born October 4, 1936 in Ferndale, MI. She graduated from Ferndale High School in 1954 and then earned her bachelor’s degree in education from Michigan State University in 1958.
Mary married Henry H. zurBurg Jr. in 1959, and raised 2 children together, Jane and Tom. She was a very hands on grandmother to her beloved granddaughter, Katie. Mary enjoyed writing letters every day at the Grand Ledge McDonald’s with the thought “Who doesn’t enjoy receiving handwritten letters?” She also loved reading and meeting with her friends, Judy Hedlund and Sharon Pool for breakfast. She volunteered for many years at the State of Michigan Archives and the First Presbyterian Church of Lansing. Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Henry, after 49 years of marriage, and her brother Thomas Martin.
Mary is survived by her sister, Betty Cudworth; daughter, Jane zurBurg; granddaughter, Katie (Jared) zurBurg Tabor, and son, Tom (Debra) zurBurg.
Private family graveside service was held. The family has entrusted arrangements to Peters & Murray Funeral Home, Grand Ledge. Please no flowers. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to GLEAP or the Grand Ledge Food Bank.
