Mary Ann Moon-Carlock went home to be with the Lord on Friday, September 24, 2021, in Virginia. A life-long resident of Donora, Mary Ann had recently relocated to Virginia to live with her daughter. A proud member of the Donora High School Class of 1953, Mary Ann loved her life in the borough of Donora. She was an avid Steeler fan, and on game day, she could be seen proudly wearing her black and gold. Recently, she added Patrick Mahomes to her list of favorite football players. Watching the steelers and shopping were two of her favorite activities. Mary Ann was always well-dressed, coordinated, and sharp! Mary Ann was a member of the Foster Grandparents Program for 20 years and was recognized by Governor Wolf for her service. The children and teachers of Donora benefitted from her desire to work and help, and her wisdom and knowledge.

Wade, Sr., to the people of Donora, Mary Ann was elevated to the position of Mother in the church. She served on the Mother’s Board, Financial secretary of the Senior Adult Women’s Sunday School class, member of the Women’s Inspirational Choir, and Usher Board Member. The Youth Department and Sunday School benefitted financially from her ability to sell more candy bars than anyone else. She loved her church family.
