Mary was born on February 10, 1935 in Watertown, Wisconsin the daughter of Frank and Ruth (Klecker) Hillebrand. Mary grew up in Lake Mills and graduated from Lake Mills High School. She married the love of her life, John Sabourin on October 26, 1957 at Xavier Catholic Church in Lake Mills and the Lord blessed their marriage with 3 children. First and foremost, Mary was a woman of faith. She was a devoted Catholic her entire life and regularly attended mass. She and her husband always sat near the front of the church. Mary’s family was also very important to her. She spent her working years caring for her three children. She was happiest when surrounded by those she loved. Her loving family fondly remembers great times spent at Mary and John’s condo in Watertown. For leisure, she enjoyed taking care of her yard. She also enjoyed playing croquet and was very competitive in that regard. In her later years, she enjoyed playing cards, bingo, and Wii Bowling with her friends at Marquardt. She was a loving mother and good friend and will be dearly missed.
