Obituary: Mary Jo (Erickson) Farleigh

Mary Jo (Erickson) Farleigh, 75, was surrounded with love and carried to her heavenly home on the wings of the Holy Spirit on Monday, March 11, 2024. She was a treasured wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Mary Jo met the love of her life, Abe Farleigh, while they served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Together, they built a beautiful home and touched countless lives.

Mary Jo was preceded in death by her mom and dad, Josie and Arvid Erickson; sister Janet; and brother John. Mary Jo is survived by husband, Abe; sons, Kevin (Diane), and Eric (Renee) and their families; special joy, Austin Farleigh; siblings Jayne Erickson, Jean (Paul) Farleigh, Rick (Lorie) Erickson, and their families.

There will be a private family gathering at a later date.
