She was born on May 12, 1943, in East Chicago, IN, to John and Anna Socha, both of whom preceded her in death.

Mary Ann was extremely devoted to St. Patrick Catholic Church. At age 14, she left home to go to the convent. After studying to be a nun, she decided to take another path in life, which led her to the love of her life, Terrence. She enjoyed her career at Westchester Library in the Audio and Visual Department for 13 years. She was also a dedicated helper to her daughter, Audrey, at Lake Effect Florals. She was her daughter’s number one fan.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
