Mary M. Middleton

Mary May Middleton died in her beautiful home Sunday October 1st. Mary was a one-of-a-kind human being who generously filled the lives of anyone she encountered with love and enthusiasm. Nothing was impossible for Mary, and not just for herself, but for anyone and everyone in her life.

Mary was born July 20th, 1967 from Joan and Lyle Middleton in Des Moines, IA. She grew up with her older sister and partner in crime, Anne, and her younger sisters Sara and Abby. She attended Roosevelt High School, Lake Forest College, University of Chicago, and received her jurisprudence doctorate from DePaul University. She followed in her father and role model Lyle’s footsteps in business and law at Atlas Companies. Her favorite title, however, was being an aunt to her nephew and niece Nate "Natty B" and Liza "SuperGirl" Bering.

She endearingly loved her wife, Suzanne Levitt, whom she shared many years of love with. From traveling the world, to building their dream home, to playing with their dogs, Suzanne and Mary were united in love.

A private family service will be held to honor the life of MMM. Please consider donating to the Young Women’s Resource Center (515-244-4901) 818 5th Ave. Des Moines, IA 50309.
