Mary Fayerweather


Mary was raised in the Plum City/Stockholm/ Pepin area and graduated from Pepin High School. She and her husband Bob have three sons and two daughters as well as eight grandchildren.

Mary was employed for seventeen years at the Bank in Pepin. She began work at the Village in 1995. She has been involved with a number of community projects. She serves on numerous committees which include The Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, and the annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Days celebration.

Mary says "The job has changed a great deal over the years. New technology has helped us manage all the new regulations that have evolved, but that has also required a lot of learning. Great customer service is our number one goal. Many folks stop in to our office in the Municipal Building but others call or use email. Basically, every day brings something new and that's just the way I like it."

Mary loves being with family, living in the Pepin area and, oh yes, golf! But everyone who knows Mary knows that about her. She says retirement is in her future, but we hope not too soon.
