Mary Ann (Sheets) Norwood passed away on Monday, September 6th at Avita Health System's Galion Hospital surrounded by her family.
Born July 25, 1947, to the late Glen A. and Loretta J. Sheets in Galion, OH.
Mary was so very loved by her family and friends. She was the matriarch of the family making sure everyone would get together at holidays to stay in touch with one another as she believed family was everything and laughter was the best medicine to cure anything. Anyone knowing Mary knew she loved dancing and singing, and in her younger days would find a dance floor to dance the night away with friends.
A dedicated wife and mother, Mary left behind her loving husband, Thomas Norwood, having spent 47 years of marriage. They loved traveling to different states and countries when they could. Mary was extremely proud of her two sons and would have traveled to the moon and back for both of them, Craig (Judy) White of Mansfield and Dustan (Jessica) Norwood of Galion.
Mary is also survived by sisters, Carolyn Sue (James) Harmon of Mount Gilead, Ruth Ann (Dean) Etzinger of Galion, and brother, Roy Lee (Fannie) Sheets of Galion. Grandchildren, Benjamin (Amanda) White, Adam Yohman, and Curtis Hatcher all of Galion. Great grandchildren, Naudia, Elijah and Bianca White, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary was preceded in death by her brother, Glen Sheets Jr.; her first husband, Drexel White; niece, Tammi Estep; nephews, Jeff Estep and Taylor Etzinger; her father and mothers-in-law along with several brother and sisters-in-law.
Mary's family will receive friends 1-3pm and 5-7pm, Friday, September 10, 2021 at Schneider Gompf Funeral Home, 303 Portland Way North, Galion where a funeral will also be held at 10am, Saturday, September 11, 2021.
