Mary Ann Edin was born November 12, 1971 in Bemidji, Minnesota to Robert and Jerilyn (Kaiser) Edin. She graduated from Kelliher High School and attended Rasmussen Business College in St. Cloud. On May 4, 1996 she married Dean Kerfeld at St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in Avon, Minnesota. After their marriage, the couple moved to Park Rapids and in 1999, returned to Sauk Centre to be closer to family and to start a family of their own. Mary spent the majority of her career in the banking industry and worked at Lake Country Bank, Minnesota National Bank, and most recently at First State Bank.

She was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre where she taught religion classes and was a member of the Sauk Centre LARKS. Mary loved going for toodles around the countryside in the Mustang and pontoon rides around the lake with family and friends. She spent as much time as she could at the family-owned lake property in the summer. Mary enjoyed attending all of her kids’ school functions and watching their sporting events. More than anything, Mary loved spending time with her family. Family was always her number one priority.

Survivors include her husband, Dean Kerfeld of Sauk Centre; three children, Madelyn, Victoria, and Jackson; sister, Valarie Kloss (Scott Waldo); brother, Robert  Edin, Jr. (Laura Noonan); mother, Jerilyn Edin; father and mother-in-law, Lee and Josie Kerfeld; in-laws, Emily Kerfeld, Kelly (Andrea) Kerfeld, and Minnow (Jason) Speidel; and many nieces and nephews.

Mary was preceded in death by her father, Robert Edin, Sr. in December of 2017.
