Mary Ann Finlay


Mary Ann Finlay (Roach), age 67, of Saint Paul passed away on January 27, 2021 after a brief illness and home hospice care in Little Canada. Mary graduated from Johnson Highschool on Saint Paul’s eastside. Over the years Mary worked for Whirlpool, Honeywell, Reel Manufacturing and Allina Hospitals. She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Caroline and her nieces Michelle and Lisa. Mary is survived by her children, Karoline and Anthony (April) and her grandson, Joshua. Mary is also survived by her siblings: Ron (Judy), Caroline (a.k.a Sis), Cynthia (Roy), Robyn (Ed) and Robert (a.k.a Bobby) as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. Mary considered her children her greatest accomplishments. She thoroughly enjoyed spoiling her grandson and loved to travel, especially with her sisters whether it was a day trip or a Caribbean cruise. Mary enjoyed putting puzzles together and watched Jeopardy religiously. She stayed in touch with her friends Cheryl, Cindy and Robin whom she grew up with and remained friends for more than sixty years. Mary had the kindest heart and soul and brightened any room she entered. There is no measure for the grief felt by those who knew and loved her. Memorials preferred.
