Mary T. "Gran" Spahn Obituary
Mary T. Spahn "Gran"

AGE: 90 • Wilmington

Passed away peacefully on February 20, 2016. She was 90 years old. Mary was a lifelong resident of Wilmington Delaware, born October 13th, 1925, and was one of four children of the late John and Mary Spahn of Wilmington. She was characterized by all that knew her as a lively, fun loving person who always displayed her spunky nature. She devoted most of her life to helping others including jobs at the Memorial Hospital, the Oblate at Padua, and the Convent at St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church. In addition, she cared for many elderly people on a private basis while never once considering herself elderly. Her uncanny ability to relate to people of all walks of life was part of the charm that endeared her to all that came into contact with her. She epitomized the saying "she'd give you the shirt off her back" and practiced that philosophy. She was also well known for her "Granisms" that always kept people laughing.

Her joy in life was spending time with her only child JoAnne (Terry), and her two grandchildren Bryan (Kelly) and Justin, and two great grandchildren Vivien and Bennett. She also was an avid animal lover that always had a dog and/or a cat. Mary was predeceased by her three brothers Johnny, Bobby and Joe.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Lorelton Assisted living Home for the compassion and care given to Mary.

Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of life memorial at Mealey Funeral Home on 2509 Limestone Road, Wilmington on Friday February 26th at 11:30 with visitation beginning at 10:00 AM. Internment will follow immediately after at Cathederal Cemetery on Lancaster Avenue.

In lieu of flowers, Gran would want you to send a donation to Faithful Friends, 12 Germay Dr., Wilmington, DE 19804 to help animals or to at (302) 652-5913
