Mary Jane Martin

Mary Jane Martin, 66, of Fond du Lac, passed away surrounded by her family on January 19, 2024. She was born November 13, 1957 to Gladys and Martin Baus in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

Mary loved volunteering, horses, Elvis, butterflies, and watching Days of Our Lives. Mary was a fantastic baker and an amazing cook, and she fed every person that she could find. She enjoyed traveling and camping. Mary rescued many dogs and loved her birds. Her favorite color was teal. Mary spent 35+ years as a CNA but most of all, she loved spending time with her family and friends.

Mary will be dearly missed by her husband Bruce Hybert; siblings Barb (Tom) Guell, Carol Baus, and Lawrence (Maryann) Baus; children Andy (Juliann) Baus, Tony (Dunee) Baus, Wendy Martin, Ashley (James) Meilahn, and Becky (Ryan) Strook; grandchildren Tyler, Zach, Stevie, Angel, Autumn, Megan, Dilan, Olivia, Koylyn, and Nikole; dearest friend Michael VandeKolk; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Mary was preceded in death by her son Dean D. Baus, parents Gladys and Martin Baus, sister Gloria Hoff, brother Elmer Baus, and former husband Dean Martin.
