Mary Ann Falkenstein

Mary Ann Falkenstein of Woodstock went to be with the Lord on the morning of June 11, 2011.

She was born on August 5, 1934 in Wheeling, WV to Mike and Anna (Kish) Evans. Mary Ann graduated from Wellsburg (WV) High School as a member of the National Honor Society.

During her adult life she worked as a kindergarten teacher and retired from Prince William County as the Senior Secretary for the Planning Department. She spent countless hours volunteering with a multitude of organizations that spanned a lifetime throughout Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley. The friendships she made through church,
volunteering, and work provided hundreds of people with cherished memories.

Mary Ann lived life to the fullest and enjoyed trips to NYC for Broadway Shows, Europe, and family vacations. She was an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys and on one occasion met Tony Romo and received an autographed photo from Roger Staubach for her service to PWC. She also embraced life’s simple pleasures like neighborhood walks and yard sale excursions with her husband.

Her biggest joy was spending time with her family and the love and dedication she expressed for them was extraordinary. She will be deeply missed by all who knew
her.

Mary Ann is survived by her loving husband of 50 years Jerry, son David and wife Faith of Strasburg, son Greg and fiancée Heidi of Prince Frederick, MD. Younger brothers Matt of Wellsburg, WV and Tommy of Alexandria, VA, grandchildren Brittany of Pensacola, FL, Justin and Taylor of Nokesville, Andrew, Paige, Curtis, and Karley of Strasburg, and great-grandchildren Jackson and Ella of Pensacola. She was preceded in death by her parents and younger sister Betty Jean.

Friends may gather at Dellinger Funeral Home Woodstock on Tuesday evening at 7 PM to Pray the Rosary with visitation about 7:30-9 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Wednesday at 10 AM, St. John Bosco Catholic Church in Woodstock. Pallbearers will be David Falkenstein, Greg Falkenstein, Justin Falkenstein, Andrew Whitmer, Curtis Falkenstein, and Steve Falkenstein.

      Aunt Tootsie, I wish so much that we had spent more time together and that life and things had not passed us by and kept us apart. I know that you are with grandma and grandpap and Aunt Bets now, and most of all our gracious and merciful God. No more sickness, no more pain…..I look forward to the day when we will unite her in heaven and spend the time together that we should have on earth. Eternal rest grant unto you and may the perpetual light shine upon you and may you rest in peace. I pray and will continue to pray that God will shine His blessings on your family. Love your neice, Michelle

    I met Mary Ann ten years ago when she trained me for a position with Prince William County. Little did I know how dear she would become to my heart. She was beautiful inside and out. I will miss our little chats, Mary Ann. A better friend could never be found. It was my absolute privilege to have known Mary Ann!

    I am so sorry for your loss. Mary Ann was always so much fun to be around.

  5. Terry Dott says:

    Mary Ann was such a gracious, funny and considerate member of our Prince William Hospital Gift Shop crew. When she
    told us she was moving away, we were all dismayed and told her how much she would be missed. Many of us have fond
    memories of working with her at the Gift Shop and of enjoying her company at our luncheons and gatherings.
    We offer our sympathies to her family and recognize what a loss this is to you all.
