Mary Katherine O’Neil, age 73, of Alpena, passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2016, at MidMichigan Medical Center-Alpena.

Mary was born and raised in Alpena, Mich. She graduated from Catholic Central High School, and Saginaw St. Mary’s School of Nursing.

She is survived by her sister, Susie (O’Neil) Martin of Alpena; Ann and Chris Barrow; Jeanie Marceau; the Art Fair Gang (Deanna, Sharon, Gail, and Sandy); and Frank.

Mary has always been so proud of her family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and her friends.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents Lucille (Nowak) and William O’Neil; one brother; and two sisters.

When asked what she wanted to say to her family and friends — “Tell them I loved them.” Turn up the Music!
