Then taken to Hope United Church of Christ 6273 Eichelberger St. Louis , Mo. 63109 Tuesday February 14, 9am until service time 10am. Interment Private.

Mary Ann was born in Highland, Illinois. She moved to South side of St. Louis and spent most of her growing up years in a four family flat off of Osceola. She always talked warmly of those years, as her best friend, also named Mary Ann, lived next door.

She began her working career at the GM and O Railroad and developed life-long friendships with her co-workers who still continued to meet monthly for lunch despite there only being a couple of the original group still available.

One year after Charlie Mikusch returned from serving in the Army in Korea, Mary Ann and Charlie got married on May 14, 1955. They had 2 sons, David and John, and Mary Ann was a stay at home Mother. She immersed herself in volunteer activities such as PTA, room Mom, school fundraising and served as a Band Parent chaperone. She worked very hard supporting her sons in Boy Scouts and her husband, as he volunteered as a Scout Leader.

In 1985 Mary Ann and Charlie bought a cabin in Hillsboro, MO at Lake Wauwanoka. After remodeling the cabin, she hosted numerous group barbeques and enjoyed sharing her special place with her special friends. Grandma and Grandpa's lake house also became a special haven for her grandchildren because Grandma was always there with a snack and an opportunity to play cards or a board game.

Mary Ann enjoyed traveling and both she and Charlie were fortunate enough to make many trips together. Camping was one of her biggest pleasures and a month long trip to California and back with their travel trailer was a highlight of her traveling adventures. She visited Alaska twice, Hawaii, and most states in between. Numerous trips to Florida and Colorado created special memories with her family.

Church played a huge role in Mary Ann's life. She was a Sunday school teacher, youth group leader, and held numerous positions on the church council. If there was a dinner going on at church, she was more than likely cooking, doing dishes, or working at the dinner in some other way. If there was an event at church needing a cake, she was right there taking a cake to the event.

Mary Ann lived her life in the service to others. She was selfless, loving, and generous. She was a major influence on her whole family, especially her grandchildren. There were always cookies in the cookie jar for visits and even dog biscuits in the cabinet for her grand-dogs.

Mary Ann personified love. There is a hole in our family which will never be filled. We're grateful that she is at peace and look forward to the day when each of us will be reunited with her in God's Kingdom.

Mary Ann leaves behind her husband of 61 years, Charlie Mikusch and 2 sons, David (Cheryl) and John (Robyn). She was Grandmother to 5 Grandchildren, Andrew, Adam (Jana), Matthew, Meghan (Alex) and Emily. She also loved her kids' dogs, Sparky and Daisy.

Condolences


On behalf of my mom-we would like to offer our deepest condolences to the Mikusch Family. MaryAnn was always one of Mom's dearest friends. Every time I mentioned her name, she would get the biggest smile on her face and say how nice she was and how they were best friends! Miss Hullings lunches will always have a special meaning. MaryAnn will be missed by all of us! God Bless!

Charlie, John and David, Sorry to hear of Mary Ann's passing. The death of a loved one is never easy. I recall fun times spent out at Camp MoVal, playing cards or indian ball. Those were some good memories. BB never did like the fireworks though! Peace be with you. Love, Jeff
-Jeff Wagner

I got to meet the Mikusch family when I began attending Hope UCC in 1974. Years later, despite my having left the church family, when I returned to visit there with my family in tow, Mary Ann and Charlie were warm and friendly to me. I consider myself fortunate to have had them in my life, and I will remember how sweet she was. While I am sure she will be terribly missed by the family I can attest that she will be missed, but remembered well, by others too. Peace.
-Paul Woodward

I'm sorry to hear the bad news about your mother. Believe me I do understand your loss. I lost. I lost my whole family
