Mary Ann Crum age 68, passed away suddenly on November 15, 2019. She was born January 23, 1951 to the late Charles and Grace Blotzer of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mary wed Lawrence Crum on April 14, 1973 and moved to Louisville, Ohio, where she lived the rest of her life. A beautiful daughter, Bethany, was born to them on September 24, 1973.
Mary will be remembered as an avid baker and even more avid fan; cheering on the Pittsburgh Penguins and Pittsburgh Steelers filled her evening schedule. She was a collector of all things Penguins, both the animal and the team, and Hallmark ornaments. The Beatles were always her musical go-to. Mary will be sorely missed as an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
In addition to her parents, Mary is preceded in death by her in-laws Herman and Elizabeth Crum; brothers-in-law Roger Stull and James Miller, and baby Love.
Mary is survived by her loving husband Larry Crum, daughter Bethany (Phillip) Cummings, grandchildren Alyssa (David) Jeffers, Zachary Cummings, Jacob Cummings (Kaitlin Chaddock), and James Dillon (“adopted” grandson), sister Betsy Miller, sisters-in-law Shirley (Frank) Cosentino, Marilyn Stull, and Judy Crum, brother-in-law Jerry Crum, nephews James (Jenn) Miller, Rick Stull, Ron (Nicol) Stull, nieces Jessica (Benjamin) Love, Katherine Miller (Zachary Beahr), and Tonya Tallman, and great nephew and niece Benjamin and Elyanah Love.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Thursday at 11:00 am at Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Harrisburg with Fr. Robert Miller officiating.

Oh Mary Ann how we laughed and giggled when visiting dad in Ohio, being at dad and mom’s home or down at the VFW. Good times. May you soul be resting in peace with God, as he called upon you, knowing you would bake those delicious pies for all in Heaven for Thanksgiving. Give a slice to dad, sit next to him and go down memory lane. You will be missed but you are placed in my heart Mary Ann, a friend, a cousin. xoxo
So sorry for the great loss to your family, I will remember Mary Ann as ornery, wouldn’t want her any other way. I will always remember her with my beautiful tree skirt she made for me. May God bless and comfort all of you, and may she rest in peace.
Mary was a wonderful friend and coworker. We always had a bond over being Steelers fans. She was so kind and loving to everyone she met. She will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May your precious memories bring you peace and comfort.
