Mary Ann Ewart, age 77 of Warren, died Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Shelby Nursing Center in Shelby Township, Michigan. She was born June 5, 1939 in Detroit, daughter of the late Chester and the late Anne (nee: Kopydlowski) Konal.
A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Mary Ann's family was the center of her world and provided her joy beyond expression. More than merely a homemaker, Mary Ann poured the best of her heart and soul into caring for them all and leaves a legacy of a life well-lived for each to treasure in their moments of reflection.
Family always came first, but Mary Ann did manage to squirrel away some time for herself which was often enjoyed expressing the artist within. Possessing an eye for beauty and a flair for the creative, it was amazing to witness the talent that flowed from her many drawings and paintings over the years. Be it pencils, pens or paint brushes, Mary Ann's tools flowed smoothly and effortlessly to create some incredibly unique pieces. Her talents were a gift that just kept on giving,…to the joy of so many.
Another pastime that was more coveted and close to her heart was found in her love of reading. Avid is such a strong word, but she built quite a library throughout her life. After managing the affairs of home and family, there was something relaxing & refreshing about curling up with a good book and getting lost in its pages.
Mary Ann knew the meaning of balance and worked hard to make it a constant in her life. She enjoyed a plethora of outlets that provided a host of different forms of entertainment, but there's no question that the most precious of all were those moments and memories made with her family and loved ones. Spending time with them was like a pure shot of adrenaline,…especially those spent with her cherished grandchildren.
Of course, there are many people with whom Mary Ann engaged throughout her life, fellow friends and associates that were impacted and influenced by her care and charisma,…people whose lives were changed, simply by her presence. For everybody that could tell a story of Mary Ann's compassion, she leaves a storehouse of wonderful memories to be embraced with each remembrance that quickens the heart and soul. She will be missed immensely and loved eternally.
Mary Ann was the beloved wife of the late Daniel. Cherished mother of Mike (Sandy) Ewart, Michelle (Pete) Campana, Daniel Jr. (Anita) Ewart, Tim (Michael) Ewart, Sue (Jim) Kaufman, Stephen (Aniko) Ewart, and Ryan (Vickie) Ewart. Dearest Grandma of Matthew, Peter, Dominic (Beth), Stephanie, Danny III, Jessica, Chelsea, Shane, Stephen, David, Brady, and Evan. Sister of Tony (Sharon) Konal, John (Linda) Konal, the late Joe (surviving wife, Nancy) Konal, and the late Rosie Pacini. Family members from her husband's side who remained very dear include; Angie (Dave) Hughes, Margaret (Art) Campbell, the late Liz McLeod, and the late Archie (surviving wife, Joann) Ewart. She also leaves many treasured nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
