Mary J. Workman

Mary Joyce Workman, “Aunt Mary” to all, died August 13, 2021. Mary, 60, of Charlotte was born on May 23, 1961, in Lansing to James and Vernal (Atwell) Workman. Mary graduated from Charlotte High School in 1979 and spent most of her career at the Collins Road Post Office front window. She retired in 2020 from the Dimondale Post Office after many dedicated years to the U.S. Postal Service. She will always be remembered as a loving, thoughtful, and generous woman who baked the best cinnamon rolls. Every Easter, the congregation at Peace Lutheran Church could count on a special cinnamon roll treat. Mary was so proud of her nieces and nephews and was very involved in their lives. Mary’s greatest loves were her fur babies. She would dress them up for special occasions, such as cowboy outfits at Frontier Days.
Mary is survived by her siblings, Roger (Marcia) Workman, Jim (Kim) Workman and Cheryl (Robert) White; nephews Michael Warren and Matt Pfeifer; best friend, Pamela Ochoa-Rodriguez. She was preceded in death by her parents.
