Mary Ann Newton, age 80 of Plymouth passed away on July 30, 2022.
She was born on February 21, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan to her parents, the late Casimir and Mary Virginia (née Redys) Satawa.
In 1967, Mary Ann came to the Plymouth Community from Dearborn. She is a former School Teacher who taught in the Garden City Schools and was the Religious Education Director at Divine Savior Catholic Church in Westland.
She is survived by her husband, Joseph, two children – Timothy (Kimberly) Newton, Molly (Troy) Legg and five grandchildren – Anthony, Eli, Virginia, Cal, and Jordan. She is pre-deceased by her parents and two sisters.
Mary Ann loved to spend time with her family and friends. One of her favorite things to do was play games with her grandchildren. She would not hesitate to show up to a soccer game, dance recital, or school activity to support her grandchildren. She loved going out for adventures with them whether it was to a museum, a walk in the park, or a movie.
She loved to travel with her husband. They traveled to Disney World multiple times, as that was her “happy place” and they loved to go on cruises and see the world. She loved to travel with her children, and their families by going to their cottage up north or to Florida.
Mary Ann was an avid reader and had a passion for reading and to expand her mind with books. She would meet with her Book Club to discuss books and be with her friends. She loved to celebrate any occasion with her family, whether it was a birthday, school achievement and there wasn’t a holiday she didn’t love.
Mom had a love of nature. Mom loved her flowers and took pride in her flower gardens and loved yellow flowers and daisies. She took joy in feeding the birds and watching them eat – especially her hummers.
Mary Ann was devoted to her faith and believe in the power of prayer. She believed anything was possible as long as you tried.
