Maryann Donlon Anglim, 68
BRUNSWICK - Maryann Donlon Anglim, 68, died Friday, May 4, 2018, at home with her family by her side, after a two-year battle with cancer.
Maryann was born on May 10, 1949, in Chicago, Ill., to Francis P. Donlon, M.D. and Emilia (Brodlo) Donlon. She was raised in Riverside, Ill. She received her B.S.N. from Loyola University of Chicago and married Thomas E. Anglim, both in 1972. She spent most of her nursing career in the operating room.
Maryann was the mother of two daughters, Guerin and Kara. She coauthored a book about her daughter Kara's illness. During that difficult time, Maryann was Kara's advocate, caregiver, and cheerleader. Maryann received her Master's of Jurisprudence in health care law at the age of 63. She was an avid reader, a knitter, a creative person who would make her own cards and decoratively address them. Maryann filled those cards with her precise handwriting expressing gratitude, condolences, compliments, or quirky observations. She enjoyed watching the Red Sox, the Patriots, and March Madness. Maryann and husband and friends had been involved in yearly trips to explore different baseball parks and their cities. She loved to dig in the dirt and preferred the woods around her home to be neat and could often be found "raking the forest." She raised chickens outside and composting worms in the cellar.
Maryann is survived by her husband, Tom; daughters, Guerin and husband, Nick Potzka; and Kara Anglim; a brother, Stephen Donlon; a sister, Dorothy Donlon and her husband, William Kysiak; and nine nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, sister-in-law Mary Clarke Donlon, and good friend Robert Knight.
Friends are invited to visit from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, May 15, at Brackett Funeral Home, 29 Federal St., Brunswick. The funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Mary's Church of All Saint's Parish, 144 Lincoln St., Bath. Interment will be in Oak Grove Cemetery for immediate family.
