Mary Ann Eppink, age 74, earned her eternal wings surrounded by loved ones and went peacefully to be with our loving God on December 5th, 2022. She was born on December 15th, 1947, in Euclid, Ohio to Steve Lovick and Gertrude (Kintz) Rancourt.
Mary Ann was a long-time member of St. Gabriel’s Church where she was a Eucharistic Minister as well as member of the confirmation and bereavement teams. Through her prayerful ways, she inspired many to follow their faith, let go of worries and always give it to God. Mary Ann courageously battled cancer for years with grace, optimism, and unwavering strength. Her heart of gold supported numerous charities but a special place in her heart belonged to the Christ Child Society of the Western Reserve, where she volunteered to support children in need. Mary Ann also enjoyed decorating, hospitality, painting her nails, baking, shopping, wine tasting and most of all being with her family and friends. She always had a knack for spreading joy and kindness and indulging in conversations with just about anyone crossing her path. She loved hosting holidays, especially her favorite holiday, Christmas.
Mary Ann is survived by her son, Steven (Lisa) Dugach and daughter, Emily Dugach; step-son, Nathan (Kelly) Eppink; step-daughter, Sarah Eppink; five grandchildren, Alex and Allie Dugach; Stella, Sadie, and Henry Eppink; sister, Peggy Lovick; nephew, Kirk Lovick. And her furry friends, Jeffre, Gracie, and Dexter.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, Donald Eppink.
