Mary Teresa Gonzales Fure
January 16, 1982—July 24, 2019
Passed away unexpectedly on July 24, 2019 at her home in Duluth, MN. Beloved daughter of Mary-Teresa Gray and Doug Fure.
Mary leaves behind three beautiful children: Emma, Ella and Etta. She will be missed.

Artistic, talented, and creative,
fierce and funny, deeply insightful,
droll, perceptive, satirical, defiant,
compassionate and passionate,
strong and fragile,
gentle and generous,
spoke her truth out loud,
strong and defiant against authority,
compassionate and oppositional,
defended the marginalized and poor,
generous with everything,
She faced heart-breaking loss and continual challenges,
big dreams and a broken mind, dropped the baton,
and it's hard to say at the end of the day,
made mistakes, lost what she held so dear,
made apologies, but continued to live with the tears
held on for those dreams,
showed how one can live with scars of the heart,
Free now from the pain,
Swimming joyfully in celestial waters,
With drops of Jupiter in her hair.

Survived by: siblings Jennifer, Michael, Paul, Elisabeth, and Brianna; step-siblings Jennifer, Christina, and Joe Olson; grandparents Michael and Mary T (Farrell) Gray; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Preceded in death by grandparents LuVerne and Esther (Smith) Fure.

A visitation will be held Friday Aug 2nd from 5-8pm at Bruss-Heitner Funeral Home, Wells, MN. A Graveside service will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday at Trinity Lutheran Cemetery-rural Kiester, MN. Please see to leave online condolences.

"Oh, this glorious sadness
It brings me to my knees.
In the arms of the angel…
Oh you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the Angel, may you find some comfort here." ~Sarah McLachlan, "Angel"
