Mary Ann Januszka, 85, of Newport Beach, CA passed away unexpectedly at Hoag Hospital Friday 1/7/2022 after sharing the joy of being with her family for Christmas. She resided in Seal Beach, CA at the time of her passing. She was born in Shinnston, WV on February 5, 1936, the eldest child of nine of Milan Sr. and Mary (Rukavina) Patrick.
Mary Ann was a proud graduate of Saint Mary's Nursing School. Shortly thereafter, she ventured West to Southern California and went on to practice nursing in a variety of settings including the hospital, clinics and eventually the private family medical practice of her beloved husband, Henry A Januszka. In addition to nursing, she helped manage the medical practice and continued her studies, receiving a master's degree in business management and eventually a PhD. She was passionate about family and loved capturing memories through photographs and documenting family heritage. She was also a very talented artist, having painted many beautiful pictures using oil-based paint and canvas as her media which will help her family honor her memory through the years. She enjoyed spending her time primarily with family on weekend outings and family vacations.
