Mary Ann Crosby

May 25, 1932 - May 24, 2022

Mary Ann Crosby, of Seven Lakes retirement community in Fort Myers, Florida, left this world suddenly after a short illness on May 24th, 2022 at age 90 and is now resting in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mary Ann was a generous and caring daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was born to Alexander Joseph Gingue and Greta Elizabeth (Mulligan) Gingue on May 25th 1932 in Portland, Maine.

After graduating from South Portland High School in 1950, Mary Ann went to nursing school at Mercy Hospital in Portland, Maine, where she made many lifelong friends. While in school she met Roger Donald Crosby, a handsome Marine. They married on June 20th 1954 and had 11 children together. Family life interrupted school for Mary Ann, but after her tenth child was born she completed her associates degree and worked as a nurse until retiring.

Mary Ann loved taking care of people, it was in her DNA. One couldn’t go to her home without her making a meal or offering to do something for you. Mary Ann also took care of the people in her building in Seven Lakes where she lived, she was always concerned about others. She was always excited to hear news of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Roger Donald Crosby, her sons Roger Donald Crosby Jr. and John Valerian Crosby. She is survived by her Children, Ann Crosby, Peter Stowell Crosby (Beth), Ellen Crosby, Susan Hathaway (Charlie), Robert Francis Crosby (Joanne), Joan Irene Daniels (Mark), Mary Paule (Bill), Ruth Crosby (Daniel Bravo), Eugene Alexander Crosby (Angela) and dozens of grandchildren and great grandchildren.

A funeral service will take place in Maine during the month of June. Details will be posted at a later date via www.MullinsMemorial.com

    My Aunt has gone Home to be with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My Aunt Mary was like a Mother to me. We spent many hours in conversation concerning all my Cousins, My Mother and so many different things. I shared Christ with Her and my Faith, she full understood that our Salvation is in only in Christ Alone! I Love You Mary I will be seeing you when I get Home. ❤
