Mary Detcher was a well known person in Monroe and served on the Monroe Board of Zoning Appeals. Her late husband, Eric, had been a Monroe Council member.
I wanted to post this for those that not heard of her passing.

I met Mary a couple of times at Council meetings and I couldn't help but like her - a sweet, intelligent woman who stood up for her convictions.

She was also a lifetime member of the Monroe Historical Society. I've done a ton of research on Civil War soldier Robert Burr who's original 1861-1865 letters to his sister Mattie Vance we have in our possession. I've traced back this man's roots from to Aaron Burr to present day and only today from Mary's obituary did I learn Mattie was her Great-Great Grandmother and Robert her Great-Great Uncle! Oh how I would have loved sharing the whole story with her.

I was saddened to read this. Mary was a very nice person, I liked her allot. She often came to council meetings. Sometimes she spoke. I snapped this photo of her at a Monroe School Board Meeting.

She was opinionated too. She spoke and editoralized on both the School Levy and the Rockies Express Pipeline. She was successful on both fronts to a degree. She was a strong spirit and she had a wonderful smile.

Here are Main Street Monore Archive links regarding Mary Detchers. May she and her former Monroe Councilman and husband Eric rest peacefully. Eric died in 2004.
