Mary Ann Castro

Obituary Condolences

Mary Ann Castro of Malvern Mary Ann Castro, 72, of Malvern, passed away Nov. 26, 2012 at her home. Mary Ann was born Nov. 19, 1940 in West Grove, Chester County, to the late Jesus and Mildred Castro. She attended Pennsylvania Hospital Nursing School and graduated in 1960 as a registered nurse. Mary Ann worked in nursing for 52 years, first at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Intensive Care Unit, then at St. Luke's Hospital in Phoenix, Ariz. and finally for the last 32 years, at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital. Mary Ann was a dedicated caring nurse who always referred to her neonatal patients as her "babies", and it was not uncommon when in public for people to approach her even years later, and tell her that she had taken care of their child, and how much they appreciated her care. Mary Ann is survived by her life love, Charles W. Shoemaker of Malvern, her companion of 52 years, her niece Lyla Taylor (Greg Taylor) and grand-nieces Naomi R. Glaze and Rhiannon D. Taylor, her great-grand niece Kalyn Taylor, and great-grand nephew Kendrick Glaze, all of Pensacola, Fla. Mary Ann also leaves her beloved cats Mooch and Sally. Burial will be private.
