Obituary for Mary Ann West

Mary Ann (Egan) West, 87, passed away peaceful on Sunday, March 8th, 2020 after a brief illness. She was the beloved wife of 46 years of the late Herbert A. West. Mary Ann was born in Ellington, Connecticut, the daughter of the late Patrick and Alice Egan, and lived on Snipsic Street in Rockville for over fifty years. She will be dearly missed by many, including her sister-in-law Carole Mack of Florida, niece Christy Christensen and her partner Al Lawrence, Jr of Tolland; nephew Benjamin Christensen and his partner Eryka Soucy of Tolland; nephew Max Christensen of Texas; nephew Tim Mack, his wife Kathy, and their son Wyatt of Vermont, as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Mary Ann had a long career at Cigna where she worked her way up from being a secretary to serving as an assistant director. She held a special place in her heart for the friends she made there, all of whom she remained close with over the years and fondly referred to as “the Cigna Ladies”. Mary Ann took great pride in the West family homestead and would always be waiting for the guys of Lawrence Lawn Care with cold soda and a smile. She was an active volunteer in the Rockville community for many years. The family would like to thank the caring staff and community of friends she made at The Ivy at Ellington, as well as the healthcare professionals of Woodlake at Tolland, ECHN, and Hartford Hospital.

Calling hours will be held Saturday, March 14th from 10 – 11 a.m. at Small & Pietras Funeral Home, 65 Elm Street, Rockville, immediately followed by a short service with burial to take place following the service at Grove Hill Cemetery in Rockville.
