Mark E. Poisall Notice
Mark (Marko, Mark-e-Mark) Edward Poisall, of Catonsville, Maryland, born on December 11, 1959 in Fort Belvior, Virginia, to the late Nancy Belle Poisall, nee Steves and the late Robert Paul Poisall, passed away at age 58 on June 23, 2018 in Ellicott City, Maryland. Mark graduated from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore in 1996, with a Master of Science in Applied Behavioral Counseling. He was in the Health industry at Sheppard Pratt Health System as a Staff Trainer/Educator and Mentor until retiring in 2017. He had a long career of teaching, mentoring, physical and mental fitness education. He worked for both Howard Community College and the Community College of Baltimore County as Adjunct Faculty. He also worked with Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine and School of Public Health. Exercise ETC., Frederick Memorial Hospital, Wellness Coaches USA, Body Management at Work and Lifebridge Corporate Health, all benefited from their affiliation with Mark. Mark was preceded in death by his son, John Mark Smith-Poisall. He is survived by his brothers, Robert J. (RJ) Poisall and wife, Phyllis; and Steven M. Poisall and wife, Char; sister, Jeanne E. Ghrist (nee, Poisall) and Kenneth Abrams; nieces, Christina (Christi) B. Ghrist, Rachel M. Poisall, Madison B. Poisall, and Kaia B. Poisall; and nephew, Charles (Chuck) R. Ghrist and wife Jamie; grand nephews, Eric R. Ghrist, Andrew R. Ghrist, and Anthony R. Ghrist. He also leaves behind his greatly loved cat, Pandora (Fang, Kitty), his buddy of 19 years. He enjoyed teaching, sharing his knowledge and of course, pontificating on said knowledge! Mark loved playing zombie brains and 'come here big boy' with nephews and nieces. A definite 'master' at creating some'things' out of nothings, 'MacGyvering' all manner of things with the help of duct tape and glue. Mark touched many lives and will be missed by all that were lucky enough to know him. A celebration of his life was held by his family. Love YOU Mark !
