NEWTON FALLS, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Mary L. Christopher, 61 of Newton Falls, passed away peacefully into eternal life, Tuesday, November 9, 2021, at University Hospitals in Cleveland.

She was born on March 13, 1960 in Warren, Ohio, the daughter of the late Courtney Brown and Erma Snowden-Hull.

Mary was a 1978 graduate of Jackson-Milton High School. 

She retired from Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna after working for 28 years as a patient care assistant. Mary also worked as a custodian for five years at Jackson-Milton High School. 

She enjoyed going to garage sales, flea markets and loved going on yearly vacations to Hilton Head, South Carolina. She also loved watching the Cleveland Browns play, going to the Church Mouse Thrift Shop and her cats, Cali and Leo. 

Mary attended Lakeview Assembly of God where she was a Sunday School teacher. She was a woman of devout faith and grace. The church served as a conduit for her selfless, giving nature and her passion for doing God’s work.

Mary was a vibrant woman who was full of life and always on the go. Mary was a proud and loving mother and grandmother, which extended beyond her immediate family. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and her church.
