Mary Sindelar Gall - cherished Mother, Wife, Nurse, Sister, and Grandmother - passed away on Wednesday, November 27th at The Hooper Care Center in Hooper, Nebraska.

Born July 10th, 1955, the fourth and youngest child to Lumir and Anna (Hajek) Sindelar, Mary played clarinet and acted in school plays, graduating high school in 1973. She attended Methodist College and graduated as a registered nurse in 1976.

In 1977, Mary married Larry Gall and eventually gave birth to three children, Jessica, Matthew and Allison Gall. Mary worked as nurse for over 40 years in various positions including site nurse at IBP in West Point, unit director at Faith Regional in Norfolk, Project Coordinator for the Heart Failure Program at Immanuel Hospital, and eventually an adjunct professor at Methodist College. One of her greatest achievements was leading the investigation on a research study that measured the effects of cardiac rehabilitation at Immanuel Hospital; she also contributed to the successful heart failure program at the Nebraska Medical Center by developing a comprehensive patient education handbook.

While raising three children and working full time, Mary was devoted to the community and her faith, leading the musical liturgy of the Catholic mass with her guitar and family on a regular basis. Her guitar was a gift from her mother, and she taught herself how to play in her spare time.

In the early 2000s, Mary decided to complete her bachelor's degree in health care management and went on to complete her master's degree in business administration. Many of the car rides to her children’s activities included a laptop, so she could complete her homework.

Mary is survived by her husband, Larry, of over 42 years; her three children and their spouses, Jessica Gall Adediran and Moshud Adediran, Matthew and Shelly Gall, and Allison and Craig Cech; and five grandchildren, Masood Adediran, Luke and Landon Gall, and Claire and Ada Cech. Siblings: Lois (John) Holloway of Omaha, Bill (Pat) Sindelar and Joe (Marilyn) Sindelar all of Howells.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lumir and Anna Sindelar, mother-in-law-Tillie Gall, grandparents, and a nephew-Brad Sindelar.

While dementia claimed her much too young and much too quickly, her family remembers her wonderful laugh, her beautiful singing voice, her obsession with antiques and fancy heels, her love of Grandma Gall's famous apricot rolls, and her sage advice to always remember to check your zipper and push your pockets in.

She is loved. She will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I worked at the West Point hospital & met Mary on her numerous trips when she brought workers for treatment from the IBP plant. Mary was bright, witty & always cheerful, a pleasure to work with, a beautiful woman who left her loved ones too soon. Cherish your many wonderful memories. Kathy Schlecht

You have my/our sincerest sympathy. I have good memories of working with Mary at IBP. Larry, I am sure you remember the fun social gatherings we had while she worked there. She left this earth way too soon. We will keep all of you in our prayers. Cindy and Rod Wagner

Mary and her family will hold a place in my heart always. I have been blessed to have been apart of their lives for the last 15 plus years as her and Larry’s hairstylist, among many other amazing moments. I always looked forward to our visits! When she walked in a room her presence was know with her beautiful smile, laugh and always sassy appearance! She will be dearly missed and I wish peace and love to the Gall family during this difficult time. ❤️

Mary was a classmate of mine at Methodist, the class of 1976. She was obviously a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and nurse. I am so sorry for your loss and pray for the comfort that only our Savior can give. My love and prayers, Vickie Pullen Schmall
