The LORD giveth and the LORD taketh away. Blessed be the name of the LORD. MaryAnn D’Addezio was carried to heaven by the angels on Thursday August 17, 2017 with family by her side. MaryAnn was born March 4, 1932 as the only child of Louis and Mary Szenko. Maryann was called by the Holy Spirit to faith in Jesus Christ through the waters of Holy Baptism on March 13, 1932. She married her childhood sweetheart, Mario on February 26, 1949. They were blessed with 5 children; Carmella, John, Debra, Cheryl (Bob McShane), and Sandra, Grandchildren; Anthony (Beth), Michael (Danielle), Timothy, Jonathan, Jennifer (Dan), Jacob, David (Jennifer), Lindsay (Chad), Antonio (Nereida), Sarah (Bob), Adrian (Tim), Great-grandchildren; Caitlyn, Cadence, Caroline MaryAnn, Arden, Logan, Ethan, Athena, Dante, Dafne, Angelina Rose, Dean, MaryAnn, Cameron, Ryan and Makenna.
MaryAnn was predeceased by both parents, her husband Mario, son-in-law Jeff, great grandson Ethan and grandson Jacob.
MaryAnn is best known for her being able to type accurately at over 100 words a minute something her kids put to the test with many a school paper, but better than that for her ethnic cooking. Although MaryAnn was 100% Hungarian she learned to cook Italian food for her husband. Her Quattro Formaggi Lasagna recipe is always being requested from people. She never pushed her kids out of the kitchen when cooking but let them help and learn how to cook all her recipes, in fact ask any of her kids about her famous wooden spoon. MaryAnn loved her children more than she could adequately express and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren that kept sprouting up. She always had a heart for those wandering on their journeys and various stray cats and dogs took advantage of her inability to turn them away. They then enjoyed many happy years as her pets. She gave her children a love of music, learning and a passion to help others.
Although she is and will be missed we are grateful that the LORD had mercy upon her and gave her a peaceful and blessed death. Family and friends will be gathering at the family farm on October 21, 2017 for a committal service conducted by Reverend Joshua Haller of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, Fairgrove, Michigan. Those wishing to remember MaryAnn in a special way are asked to donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital
