On Thursday, April 16, 2020, Mary Ann Goepfrich, passed away at age 67. Mary Ann was born on May 6, 1952, in South Bend, Indiana to Joseph F. and Marjorie A. (Steenbergen) Goepfrich.
She was a licensed beautician for many years and worked alongside her mother at Marge’s Beauty Salon. She was also an accomplished ceramist and artist and ran a small boutique store selling finished ceramic pieces and offering lessons and various art supplies. During this time, she actively pursued her passion for horseback riding, especially on her much beloved “Buck” and “Misty.” Health issues caused by an automobile accident intervened necessitating the end of her career ambitions due to disabilities. She continued her love of animals and grew very close to the service dogs who accompanied her through her years of being disabled. Throughout her life, Mary Ann loved her family and friends deeply and always appreciated a call or visit as well as going to family events as her health permitted.
Mary Ann was preceded in death by her parents and sister-in-law Norma Goepfrich. She is survived by her brothers Thomas, James (Denise), and Joseph (JoAnn) Goepfrich and by her sister Catherine (Kerry) Knabenshue. She is also survived by ten nieces and nephews, fourteen great-nieces and nephews, many cousins, and her lifelong friend Mardell Szynski.
