Mary Jane Gingrich
Bay City, Michigan
Mary Jane went home to be with her heavenly Father Saturday, November 03, 2012 at the Carriage House of Bay City, age 85. She was born May 7, 1927 in Hampton Township to the late Archibald and Lillian (Carlson) McDonald. She married Orlin E. Gingrich in 1947; he survives her. Mary Jane retired from Saginaw Valley State College Library after several years of dedicated service. She was a member of First Baptist Church, Bay City and enjoyed camping, working in her yard and spending time outdoors.
Surviving besides her husband Orlin is five children: Carol (Ray) Dolinski, James (Rose Ann), Eugene (Sherry), Byron (Jenny) and Kayla Gingrich, ten grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren and one brother in-law, Veron (Lenora) Gingrich.
Mary Jane’s wish was to have her body donated to the University of Michigan Medical School. No visitation will be held for Mary Jane. Her family will have a private service at a later date. Those who would like to express their sympathy may wish to consider a memorial to a charity of their choice in Mary Jane’s name. www.squiresfuneralchapel.com
