Upon graduation from Southeast High School, Mary Ann began her career as bookkeeper at the former Martin Motors in Ravenna. Mary Ann became the office manager when the business was acquired and became the Courtesy Chrysler Plymouth auto dealership. It was a perfect match as she loved interacting with the public and the employees. Mary Ann was also a licensed cosmetologist who not only relished the profession but also the relationships she developed with her clients. In the years following her retirement, Mary Ann devoted time to her beloved church community, Immaculate Conception. She was the first to raise her hand and volunteer her service to church ministries. She was a talented organist who played masses at Immaculate Conception, Randolph, and Lake Milton as well as family weddings. The family suggests honoring Mary Ann's memory by contributing to Immaculate Conception Church in Ravenna, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or to the donor’s individual choice. The family would like to thank Dr. Benjamin Walter at the Cleveland Clinic for his amazing care of Mary Ann and family support. In addition, we greatly appreciate the wonderful nursing and support team at Crossroads Hospice Care. Condolences and memories of Mary Ann may be shared with the family at www,sscfuneralhomes.com.
