Mary Ann Gordick, 75, a resident of Cape Coral, formerly of Youngstown, OH, passed away Tuesday, October 7, 2014 in Cape Coral. She was born August 30, 1939 in Youngstown, OH to Charles and Katherine Kuharich, now deceased.

Mary Ann was of the Christian faith. She was the oldest of six children. She was a registered nurse for 45 years and helped begin the first intensive care unit in the country at the Cleveland Clinic. Mary Ann was a kind joyful spirit who loved to laugh, tell long stories, and celebrate the happy moments of her own and loved ones’ lives. She loved music, in particular jazz, and fondly remembered seeing some of the nation’s jazz greats as they came through Ohio during her time as a student and young nurse. She devoted her life to service to others and in her work as an RN helped provide medical care for those in need be they new born babies or hospice patients. Mary Ann was the devoted wife of Peter Gordick, also of Youngstown, who was a musician and entrepreneur. She was the loving mother of Diana, a teacher, and Bonnie, a psychologist. She loved spending time with her children and family and knowing about all of the recent developments in their lives.

Though her health failed her in her final years, she never lost her easy laugh, the twinkle in her eye, or the pleasures of the simple joys in life. She was a kind, loving and joyful person up until the moment she was called home by God.

She is survived and will be tremendously missed by her beloved husband of 43 years, Peter Gordick of Cape Coral; two daughters, Diana Gordic of Cape Coral and Bonnie Gordic and husband Francisco Maldonado of Highland Park, NJ; siblings, Raymond Kuharich (wife Diane) of Austintown, OH, Katherine Pulakos (husband Dean) of Ft. Mill, SC and Joan Ruchtie (husband Paul) of Canfield, OH; numerous nieces and nephews; as well as Baby the cat.

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her sister, Carol Jean Kohl and brother, Charles Kuharich, Jr.
