Mary Ann Filer

Mary Ann Filer, 82, of Waynesburg, went home to be with her Lord Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019, after a valiant six-month battle with a rare form of ovarian cancer.

She was born September 26, 1936, in Waynesburg, a daughter of the late William Stanford Mooney and Ida Rose Mooney.

On October 15, 1957, she married Dana E. Filer, who passed away July 13, 1998.

Mary Ann had worked for several local businesses including: Islay's, Rexall, Greenway Manufacturing, Columbia Gas Transmission and the cafeteria at Margaret Bell Miller Middle School, which she enjoyed because of her love for all the children.

She was a member of the First Christian Church of Waynesburg and was affiliated with Fairall United Methodist Church Festivals. In her earlier years she had also taught Sunday school.

She was a proud member of both the Whiteley Township Society of Farm Women, and the Waynesburg High School Class of 1954.

Mary Ann was a devoted and beloved mom, grandma and great-grandma who understood the value of spending time with all of her children. She always enjoyed being of help to others. She loved being outdoors, gardening, and horse and 4H shows, and feeding her hummingbirds. She was an avid local scholastic sports fan, and when health permitted was always present cheering everyone on, especially wrestling and track and field.

Surviving are two daughters, Tammy Bryan (Frank) and Tonya Patton (Timothy King), both of Waynesburg; four grandchildren, Frank Bryan (Jessica), Lee Bryan (Emily), Cody Patton and Randi Lee Shirley (James); seven great-grandchildren, Dayla and Daxon Shirley, Frankie, Knox and Colt Bryan, and Lily and Lincoln Bryan; two brothers, John Mooney (Elva) of Washington and Bill Mooney (Jane) of Vermillion, Ohio; and all her endeared nieces and nephews.

Deceased are two sisters, Alene Luzadder and Helen Husk; and four brothers, Robert Mooney, James Mooney, C. Kenneth Mooney and Charles Mooney.

Friends will be received 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Behm Funeral Homes Inc., 182 W. High Street, Waynesburg, where services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 26, with Pastor Robert Mooney officiating, followed by entombment in Greene County Memorial Park.
