Mary Catherine Flesch Min
Mary Catherine Flesch Min (9/28/1962-12/5/2013) was
the second child of Paul and Dorothy Flesch and beloved younger
sister of Marcia. She grew up in the family home in Costa Mesa. Mary
graduated high school as valedictorian of her class, and decided
to pursue cosmetology. She had a real gift as a stylist, and built her
own business, Hair By Mare in Newport Beach. She later went to work
for the US Post Office, where she met her beloved husband Roy Min.
Everyone who knew Mary knew of her huge heart and love for her
family and friends – and everyone who got to know Mary was her friend.
Mary devoted her life to caring for her mother Dorothy after her
father Paul passed away. Her greatest joys were her husband Roy, niece
Jessica, nephew David, her family and many friends.
When one member of her support group said that she was dying of
cancer, Mary replied, "I'm living with cancer." Mary spent the last
year of her illness living life to the fullest, with the support and
love of Roy. Right to the end, her unquenchable joy shone through,
with her wide smile, twinkling eyes, and hearty laugh.
Mary is survived by her mother Dorothy Flesch, husband Roy Min, sister
Marcia Morrissey, brothers-in-law Edward Morrissey and Jon Min,
niece Jessica Min, and nephew David Morrissey.
A memorial service will be held at Ss. Simon & Jude Catholic Church in
Huntington Beach, at 10 am on Wednesday, December 11th.
