Mary Ann was born and raised in Altoona, PA where she achieved her R.N. diploma from the Altoona Hospital School of Nursing and married her beloved husband Francis Branic on August 16, 1952. They moved to Strongsville from Cleveland, Ohio where they raised five children. Mary Ann loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. She shared this talent at St. Joseph’s Church for many years. Mary Ann had a strong faith in God and lived her life in generosity of heart to all who knew her. She created lasting memories for her family and friends through her talents of cooking, baking, sewing, and abundant sharing of wisdom and life’s treasures. Always the “encourager,” Mary Ann would bring out the best in people with her special brand of compliment. Mary Ann’s greatest gift to her family has been the bonds of her love knitted with Faith, that strengthened with the addition of each family member. She was the true heart of our family. Mass of Christian Burial will be private for immediate family members only. Interment will be held at a later date at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery. No Flowers Please. Memorial contributions may be made to St. Joseph Catholic Church, 12700 Pearl Road, Strongsville OH 44136.
