FAYETTE – Mary Ann Beaverson, age 83 of Wauseon and formerly Fayette, passed away Sunday, September 17, 2023, at Fulton Manor Nursing Home, surrounded by her daughters, under the care of Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
She was born in Hudson, MI on March 23, 1940, to the late Maholn and Aldy (Milliman) Ort. Mary attended school in Morenci and worked with her father at Bancroft the same time.
She graduated in 1958, and that same year, married her husband, Richard W. Beaverson. Together, they lived in Fayette and had three children, Terry, Candi, and Penny.
While raising their children, Mary Ann worked as an STNA at the former Detwiler Manor, transferring to Fulton Manor.
