Mary Anne Palomo, age 66, of Castalia, and beloved mother of three sons, Israel, Adrian, and Lucas Palomo and adoring wife to Fred Palomo, passed away peacefully Saturday evening, March 5, 2022, at Stein Hospice Care Center, Sandusky, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Mary Anne was born March 9, 1955, to Matias and Mercedes (Rodriguez) Torres at Good Samaritan Hospital in Sandusky. She grew up surrounded by her large family of twelve siblings. Mary Anne was influenced by her family to be an incredibly beautiful woman, always giving her love and time to others, and incorporated that into her motherhood.
She met her husband, Fred in 1974 after he was discharged from the Army and they fell in love instantly. They knew they both shared a love for family and decided to start their own. As a mother she was generous, loving, and kind. She had the real heart of a mother and was very proud of her sons; lavishing them with love as much as she possibly could. Mary Anne became a grandmother to six and was absolutely thrilled about having more children to love! In her free time, she loved to go to as many sports games/events for her sons and grandchildren as she possibly could. She was their biggest fan and cheerleader.
Her family moved during her sophomore year at Margaretta High School, and was a graduate of Fremont Ross High School in 1974. She worked in the accounting department of Wahl Factory for over 30 years. Upon her retirement, she and her husband traveled and were blessed to be able to enjoy their son’s families’ special moments and lives.
Anyone that truly knew Mary Anne, knew she had such a big heart and loved her for who she was. Her love for God shines brightly in every life she touched. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Mary Anne. She had the ability to find happiness in her daily activities such as enjoying the delicious “specialty” coffee her husband made her every morning and traveling with him. She loved spending time in the kitchen and is known for her delicious Mexican food—especially her chicken mole and tortillas. They were the best!
Her love of life didn’t come to an end with her death, but her family will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest. She will be greatly missed by her husband Fred; her sons Israel (Jill), Adrian (Rachael), and Lucas (Holly); grandchildren Samuel, Ben, Eden, Isla, Maximus, and Cordelia; brothers Joe (Vida) Torres, Danny (Olga) Torres; sisters Emma (Bennie) Martinez, Lydia (Alfredo) Torres, Irma (Robert) Jones, Sallie (Caesar) Hernandez, and Teddie (Rigo) Hernandez; sister in-law Jean Torres; brother in-law JB Jenkins; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary Anne has now been reunited in heaven with family members; grandson Samuel Isaac Palomo; parents Matias and Mercedes Torres; brothers Manuel and Vince Torres; sisters Gloria Torres and Beatrice Jenkins; nieces Victoria Mercedes Imke, Esther Marie Wonser, Erica Mary Jones, Christy Beatrice Jones; and nephew José Luis Navarro.
Friends may call Thursday, March 10, 2022, from 2 PM until time of Funeral Service at 4 PM, at Ransom Funeral & Cremation Service, 610 S. Washington St., Castalia. Rev. Dave Brown will officiate.
