To send flowers in memory of Mary L. Costa, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
The precious mother of Jacquelyn (Bob Helbig), Joseph (Candace) and Jennifer (Marc Abendroth) exemplified selfless devotion to God and family. To her beloved granddaughters, Mia, Tess and Ariana, her honey-girls, her mission was to pack their hearts full of joy and their tummies full of delicious Italian treats.
She is further survived by her dear sister, Rosanne (Jack) Liebl, cousin Michael (Susie) Corrao, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Alongside Jack, she founded Costa’s Olde-Fashion Lemonade, a Summerfest staple. For more than 30 years, she aided in every facet of the business’ success and influenced the lives of countless teenagers working their first jobs.
Visitation will be on Friday, July 12 from 10:00AM until the 11:00AM Mass of Christian Burial at Lumen Christi Catholic Church, 2750 W. Mequon Road, Mequon 53092. A private committal service will be held at Resurrection Cemetery. In Lieu of flowers, memorials in Mary’s name to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
