After gracefully fighting cancer, Mary, 54, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on October 18, 2019.
Mary was a lifelong resident of Cuyahoga Falls and a 1983 graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School. She attended the University of Akron where she earned her Bachelor's in Accounting. Mary worked for the F.W. Albrecht Grocery Company for 14 years, starting as a cashier and working her way up to the Main Office, leaving the company in 1994 to live out her dream job as a homemaker and stay at home mom. She volunteered at Woodridge Local Schools for 18 years in the library. Mary loved the beach and vacationed at Ocean Isle with her family for 26 years. She enjoyed spending time in nature, listening to music, walking her Yellow Lab, and enjoying a good beer with her husband. She will always be remembered for her smile, her warmth and her kind heart.
Mary was preceded in death by her father, Richard J. (Mac) McMillin, her aunt, Betty Ferrante, and cousin in-law, Linda Ferrante.
