Mary Ann Tock, beloved aunt to Tim, Tom & Terry passed away at home on Sunday, April 19, 2020. Born April 23, 1924 in Wellsburg, West Virginia, her family moved to Grand Rapids in 1925. She was predeceased by her parents Norman Tock, Sr. and Merle Fleming Tock, her brother Norman Tock Jr., her nephews Tim Tock, Terry Tock, and cousin Steve Harton, grand nephew Chris Salcau, and cousins Jim and Joan Harton. She is survived by her nephews Tom Tock, cousins Tom Harton and Bob Harton, nieces Jan Lancaster and Gina Partyka, sister-in-law Dorothy Tock, great-nephews and nieces Paula (Eric) Mertins, Geoff Tock (Charissa Chan), Erin Tock, James (Alicia)Tock, Cate Tock, and Adrienne Salcau; great-great nieces and nephews, Avery and Conner Mertins, Johanna and Eleanor Tock, and Isaiah and Ezra Tock, and Kendrick, her cat she shared with Cate.

Having graduated from Creston High School (1941) she remained a "North Ender" the rest of her life. She traveled throughout the American West with her father and to Guatemala, England, Denmark, Germany, Canada, and Alaska. Mary Ann worked for Consumers Powers for 43 years, was a member of Second Congregational Church for 75 years (attended for 92 years) and a long time member of the Daughters of The American Revolution. Mary Ann was passionate about the family genealogy and created volumes of materials for her family.

Memorials may be made to Second Congregational Church, Emmanuel Hospice or the North End Community Ministry.

Due to the COVID crisis, a family celebration of her life will take place at a later time.

... thank you...such a lovely photo, of such a respected lady....To say this came as an unexpected shock to me to hear of Mary Ann's sudden death, ( i was so sure she would soon be back posting with us )...It is our sad loss but our heavens glorious gain....

I hope Mary Ann is now looking down on Duluth Harbor, this was the place - the cams views which gave her such pleasure, admiring the long ships - boats coming in and out....

Rest In Peace Mary Ann Tock... sending my heartfelt condolences to her family..

I was so sad to read about Mary Ann this morning.  I always admired her and enjoyed her daily posts.  I'm glad she had her loving family with her.  They meant so much to her.


I'm typing this with tears in my eyes.  Mary Ann was a very special lady who loved life and lived it to the fullest.  It was plain to see that her family was the brightest part of her life.  I know she's in heaven and has no more pain in her life.  I will miss her as if she lived next door!  God bless all her family and bring you peace!  Love and good wishes go with her and also remain here with all the generations of her family who loved and were loved by her! With love and best wishes from Jane Stamm

Thank you, Patricia, for bringing the message here, and thank you Tom Tock, for letting us know, and also for realizing how much Mary Ann meant to all of us.  In my world I am sure she & Norm and all the rest of the family, are having the hugs and pats on the back  they've been missing. What else can Heaven be?
Because Mary Ann loved and talked about her family so much, we feel like we know all of you so any time you get a chance, we'd love to know how life goes on with the Tock Family. God Bless and give you strength, so hard to console each other without sharing hugs and tears. She will live on in our memories and hearts. Shirley in Kansas


Such a sad day
finding out that my dear Friend
Mary Ann from Senior and Friends has
past away.... peacefully at home
with her loved ones.

Mary Ann,  I am going to miss reading
about you and your life  all these years
that we have been  on Senior Net
and Senior and Friends. 

I think that it is important for me
to remember to keep posting and sharing
my days because many people do depend
on all of us showing up and contributing
as you have done faithfully all of these
years ...

Thanks so much for being here for all
of us. 

love Sandy

Sing like no one's listening.
Love like you've never been hurt,
Dance like nobody's watching, and
Live like it's heaven on earth.



What a beautiful picture  of Mary Ann.  That is how I will remember her.  She sure will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. I will miss seeing the pictures of the little twin girls.  I think they are the children of her nephew.  She always was so anxious when she would talk about going to visit them.

Remember that your loss is shared by many friends who care
and that you're in our thoughts and hearts and in our every prayer
May you find the courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today.

Tom, condolences to you and your family. Kendrick will also be lost so extra hugs for him.

Bubble, thank you for the photo of Mary Ann.

A sad goodbye to Mary Ann, my special cyberfriend.  The kind of friend I would love to have had living near me, so we could spend real time together.  I felt an immediate connection to her after my first post in Bait and Tackle, about four years ago.  She welcomed me, asked me questions, and made me feel comfortable right away.  She was genuinely interested in my life, and the lives of everyone else who posted in that folder. 

Mary Ann lived a long and active life, and was loved very much by her large family, and her many friends.  I feel privileged to have been one of her friends, and I hope we will meet again some day.


It has been a real pleasure to know Mary Ann.  She loved her family and often spoke of them in her posts and you could tell that they loved her too.  Mary Ann was such an inspiration to me.  Her ability to just go with the flow and accept each day happily, especially if the sun was shining.  She often said if the sun was shining it was a good day.  I'm thankful I had the privilege to know her.


I am already missing Mary Ann.  She was a lovely lady who kept us posted with her family and friends who so dearly loved her.  To Tom Tock and her other relatives I'd like to express my sympathy for your loss.  She will be missed for quite a while.



What a beautiful photo of MaryAnn . It is just as I pictured her.
She will be missed so much by family and all of us that have known her over the years.
