Mary Margaret Kienle
Mary Kienle, 77, of Albuquerque passed away Monday, July 12, 2021. She was born January 24,
1944 in Carmel, California to Joseph and Elsie Mascarenas. Her parents, three sisters, and one brother preceded her in death. Mary is survived by her three children—John (Karen) Kienle of Albuquerque, Deborah (Aaron) Legaspi of Peoria, IL, and Leslie Sauer (Brent) of Albuquerque—four grandchildren—Orion Galligher, Jonathon Ramos, Briland and Grayson Kienle—and three great grandchildren—Michael, Rowen, and Boston—sister Cathy Madison, nephew Donny Houston, and her beloved dog Hazel Grace.
Mary will be remembered as a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and friend of many. She was very active in her faith. Her love of Jesus showed through all that she did. She enjoyed teaching Sunday School, crafting, gardening, and baking. Mary often socialized with both friends and workers at McDonalds and Target/Starbucks who she treated with cupcakes and cookies. Her warm smile and happy demeanor was contagious and returned in kind. She was truly a person who “never met a stranger.” She will be missed beyond measure.
Mary’s memorial service will be held on July 29 at the Monterey Baptist Church located at 12501 Lomas Blvd NE Albuquerque, NM. The service will begin at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to go to Monterey Baptist Church.
