Heaven gained an angel on February 11, 2024 when Mary E.

Runge and Stanley J. Dykty.  She was the daughter of the late Paul and Dorothy (Kniss) Miller.  Mary graduated from Central Catholic High School.  She was a secretary for Joe G. Walters.  Mary married Leo F. Runge and became his secretary for Runge Plumbing and excavating then Atlas waterproofing, both owned and operated by Leo.  After his passing she met and married Stanley J.

The family would like to thank Bayada Hospice for their compassion in taking care of mom in her final days.  We would like to thank the staff at The Heritage for the years of giving mom wonderful care.
