Mary Ann Borling, age 81, of Brunswick, Ohio passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022. She was born on May 19, 1940 in Berea, Ohio to Thomas and Juanita McLaughlin. She was the oldest of nine siblings, whom she loved very much.
Mary Ann married Kenneth Borling in 1960, and raised her children living in Parma and later, Brunswick, Ohio. She had a wonderful career at UPS for 20 years, breaking the glass ceiling for future generations. While at UPS she led the fundraising for United Way, which she truly enjoyed.
Mary Ann, fondly named “Nina” by her grandchildren, was welcoming to all who came to visit. She loved gardening, quilting, and volunteering. Her gardens were beautiful, and her quilts were made with warmth and never ending love. Nina was a true matriarch of her family. She always encouraged get togethers and fun-seeking with family and friends. For many years, she volunteered for the Red Cross blood drives and Medina County Board of Elections. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and Quilt Guild. She also mentored fellow breast cancer survivors through the Cleveland Clinic program.
Mary Ann is survived by her husband, Ken of 62 years; four children, Matthew Borling of Brunswick, OH, Mark (Betsy) Borling of Broadview Heights, OH, James (Elaine) Borling of Powell, OH, and Ann (David) Zelch of Medina, OH; and five beloved grandchildren, Joshua and Cassie Zelch, Luke and Liam Borling, and Sarah Borling.
The family would like to thank the kind care givers at Lifecare Center of Medina for their kindness and care for Mary Ann.
A private burial is planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to Catholic Charities or Hospice of the Western Reserve www.hospicewr.org.
