Mary Ann Koly, 62, loving mother, sister and aunt, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on August 16, 2021.
Mary was born on September 14, 1958 in Akron, OH. She was a 1976 graduate of St. Vincent – St. Mary High School and received a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Akron. Mary led a very successful career in the PBM industry and was currently employed at America’s Pharmacy Source.
She enjoyed traveling, Ohio State football, Cleveland sports, spending time in the sun, shopping, and a glass of chilled white wine. Most of all she loved spending time with her daughter, family and friends. Whether at one of her favorite local restaurants with her fiancé Randy, going to Porthouse Theatre with friends, or hosting a family event, she was loved by all who were lucky enough to have her in their lives. If you ever had the chance to meet Mary, she knew everything about your life through her endless questioning, and her opinion was always given, but not always solicited. Mary’s larger-than-life personality, contagious laugh, smile and elbow jabs will be missed by all.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Terry Koly of 21 years; parents, Jerry and Eleanor Fulkerson; niece, Jackie Jones, and sister-in-law, Catherine (Rowland) Koly. Her memory will live on in the heart of her daughter and greatest joy, Jessica Koly; siblings, Jeannie (David Yeager) Jones (nee Fulkerson), Ruth Fulkerson, Donald (Jill) Fulkerson; fiancé, Randall Szabo; brother-in-law, Ron Koly; nieces and nephews, Vanessa (Mark) Wadlington, Danielle (Daniel) Rodriguez, Marie (Jason) Christman, Kyle, Ryan and Kevin Fulkerson, Kelly (Mitch) Porta; great-nephews and niece, Kaeden Wadlington, Isabella Rodriguez, Owen and Collin Christman; family friend, Bruce Kluender; many loving cousins, friends and business colleagues; and her beloved granddog, Murphy.
