Mary Ann Skotynsky


Mary Ann Skotynsky joined her heavenly Father at the age of 83, on June 30, 2009.
She peacefully passed away at Toledo Hospital surrounded by her family. She was born December 22, 1925 to
Gregory "Harry" and Mary (Kusner) Wulczak. Her childhood home was the old farmhouse on Bates
Road where she grew up with her three brothers, Michael, Peter, and William; and two sisters, Anita and
While attending Perrysburg High School she had her first job as an "ice cream scoop girl" at
Broske’s in downtown Perrysburg. Soon after graduating, she ventured off to Chicago to become a
teletypist at Western Union.
After a few years, her friend Paul Skotynsky traveled there to bring her back since in his eyes it was
"no place for a single girl." Soon after, Paul asked her to be his bride. At that time, food
was rationed due to the war. They traded and borrowed rations to come up with the necessary items to
host their wedding reception.
To support the family, Mary worked various secretarial and administrative positions at Toledo Building
Maintenance, AT&T, AP Parts Co., Foster Brothers & Weber, LOF Local 9, and the Toledo
Board of Education – Food Services.
Mary Ann has three surviving sons, Paul N. (Marilyn) Skotynsky, Michael Scott Skotynsky, and Matthew
(Lea) Skotynsky. "Nonnie" was extremely proud of her six grandchildren, Beth, Brian, Kevin,
Mitchel, Bridge and Michael, as well as, six great-grandchildren, Alexa, Collin, Morgan, Katie, Sydney
and Caden. She is also survived by her sister Natalie Bohaczenko.
She was preceded in death by her husband Paul, parents Gregory and Mary Wulczak, brothers Michael
Kushner, Peter Kushner, and William Wulczak, and sister Anita Beloff.
Mary’s family wishes to extend their thanks to care aides at Kingston Residence of Perrysburg and Toledo
Hospital for their superb care and support. She will be deeply missed as a loving mother who diligently
worked to care for her family. Our memories of Mary Ann will last forever.
