Obituary of Maryann Elizabeth Gray
Maryann Elizabeth Gray, born August 18, 1934 in Wallington, New Jersey passed away January 11, 2022, after a brief illness. Maryann was predeceased by her husband of almost 66 years, when on March 23, 2020, Arthur Alfred Gray passed away. She is survived by their children: Margie (John) Freeman, Tom (Livi) Gray, Laura (Sam) Measell, and Allison (Alan) Beach, and grandchildren: Jessica (Ray) Verar, Stephanie (Mike) Hodges, Priscilla (Neal) York, Christopher (Abby) Freeman, Kevin Gray, Timbi Shepard, Scott Measell, Joe Measell, Camille Beach, Sophia Beach, Robbie Shepard, and Jenna Gray, and great-grandchildren: Camby York, Ava Verar, Gray Hodges and Ira Freeman. Maryann and Art made friends wherever they lived. As a young married couple, they lived in Art’s hometown of Carlstadt New Jersey where they began their family. Over the years Art’s career path led them to Hollywood FL, College Park, GA, Harrisonburg, VA, and finally to Alpharetta GA. After retiring from work life, they lived their dream of moving to sunny central FL where they enjoyed 12 sunny warm years at a lovely place where their family came to visit often. Health concerns moved them back to GA in 2012 so they could be closer to family. Maryann enjoyed helping people and making their day a little bit better. After her children became independent, she spent time volunteering at local hospitals as a Pink Lady and looking for ways to help wherever she was needed. Maryann was an avid puzzle builder and enjoyed animals of all kinds – especially kittens and puppies. Maryann enjoyed peoplewatching and always had a smile for everyone she met. A homemaker by vocation, she treasured time with family. All times together were special for the family. Art and Maryann enjoyed planning family vacations at the beach and creating a family favorite tradition for a special time together at Thanksgiving. A special celebration of life for both Maryann and Art will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 1 PM at The Meeting House at Reunion Country Club, with a reception to follow. If you would like, please consider donating in Maryann’s honor to support your local SPCA, St Jude’s Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice.
