AMES – Mary Ann Quint 89, of Ames, passed from this life on Thursday, Nov. 12, at Bethany Manor in Story City where she was being cared for following a fall and stroke in early October.
Mary Ann Quint was born Feb. 19, 1926 in Winthrop, to Hugh and Maree (Miller) Connolly. After graduating from Winthrop High School in 1943, Mary Ann attended Iowa State Teachers College. She taught for two years in an Amish community near Independence and another 48 years at East Buchanan Community Schools. Teaching was her passion.
In 1948, Mary Ann married Paul T. Quint and to this union were born three children: Mona, David and Angela. Mary Ann was a member of Catholic Daughters of America, Delta Kappa Gamma and St. Cecilia Catholic Church. After retiring from teaching, Mary Ann moved to Ames to be closer to family. She resided at Bickford Cottage Assisted Living from 2009 until early October.
Mary Ann is survived by her son, David (Kathy) Quint, London; son-in-law, Terry Ball, Iowa City; daughter, Angela (Jim) Nespor, Ames; six grandchildren: Jennifer (Tony) Parsons, London; Angela (Pete) Robertson, London; David (Emma) Quint, Dallas, Texas; Geoffrey (Laura) Quint, Washington, D.C.; Quinton and Monique Nespor, Ames; seven great grandchildren; her sister, Della (Babe) Ramsey, Cedar Rapids; and brother, Jim Connolly, Chicago, Ill.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Paul, daughter Mona, and two brothers, John and Ray Connolly.
Mary Ann will be remembered for her sharp mind, sense of humor and witty remarks. She loved helping children learn and was always a "teacher".
A celebration of Mary Ann's life will be held at a later date, possibly in the spring--her favorite time of year.
