Posted By Wendy On August 14, 2019 @ 12:37 pm In Obituaries | 9 Comments

1934 – 2019

Thompson – Mary Ann (Askey) DeParasis, 84, died peacefully surrounded by her family on August 8, 2019 at Hartford Hospital. Born in Dixonville, PA, she was the daughter of the late Jess and Madeline (Maruschak) Askey.

Mary Ann was a devoted wife and mother. She cherished her family, hosting memorable holiday and family celebrations. She wrote beautiful handwritten letters and she never allowed a birthday, an anniversary, or special event to pass without sending a greeting card, mailed at just the right time to arrive on the exact date (always with a letter enclosed.)

She was an avid Red Sox Fan. During the off season, she watched the Hallmark Channel while she completed her many crossword puzzles (in ink.)

She worked for many years as a bookkeeper, receptionist, and office worker for Williamsport Furniture, WT Grant, and Palmer Food Distributors.

Mary Ann is survived by her two sons, David “Barry” DeParasis of Dayville, and Brian DeParasis, of Plainfield; two daughters, Michele DeParasis and her husband Al Chin, of Billerica, MA, and Melanie Manzoli, nine grandchildren, Stacey, Heather, Holly and Brian DeParasis, Maddie Chin, Michael, Christopher and Shawn (Sandra) Hamilton, and Matthew Smart; three great grandchildren, Grant DeParasis, Alexander and Ethan Hamilton. Also surviving are her brothers, Ronald of Grassflat, PA, Arthur of State College, PA, and Steve of York, PA; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends. She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, and her brothers, Paul, Edgar, and Eugene.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Westfield Congregational Church, 210 Main St., Danielson, CT on October 6, at 1:00 pm. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Gilman Funeral Home and Crematory, 104 Church St, Putnam, CT. For memorial guestbook visit www.GilmanAndValade.com.
