Mary Ann Liland

January 2, 1945 - November 23, 2022

It is with regret that we announce, the peaceful passing of Mary Ann Liland following a stroke.

She was born in Newark, NJ and grew up in Madison, NJ before retiring to Manahawkin and Barnegat. Mary Ann was a physical education teacher in Florham Park, NJ. After retirement from teaching, Mary Ann couldn’t sit still. After moving to Manahawkin, she took employment as a security guard at Southern Regional Middle School until her final retirement.

Mary Ann is survived by her brother, Alfred Liland, and his wife, Paula, of Supply, NC.

She is also survived by 2 nephews, Mark Scarano and his wife, Lisa, of Westfield, NJ, and Eric Liland of Raleigh, NC, as well as 3 nieces, Laura Ellis of Long Beach Township, NJ, Valerie DeVito and her husband, Vincent, of Westfield, NJ, and Sheryl Healy and her husband, William, of Londonderry, VT, including 5 grand nephews, 6 grand nieces, one great grandnephew, and an expected great grandniece. She is also survived by an aunt, Rosemarie, and several cousins.

She is predeceased by her parents, Haakon and Mary Liland, and her brother, Vincent Scarano and his wife, Stephanie.

Mary Ann enjoyed participating in sports, traveling, puzzles, planning Easter egg hunts for her family and spending time with family, friends, and her dog, Mia. She was involved in activities and committees at the Heritage Point community where she met many friends. Regular trips to Atlantic City to hit the slots with family and friends was also a favorite past time. Mary Ann was well known for her photographic memory and was able to cite directions well, especially when it came to avoiding the Parkway to travel north or anything from her latest car or appliance manuals which she read thoroughly.

She lived life the way she wanted to and will be missed by everyone, as she goes on her new journey.

A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2022 from 1pm until her blessing service, 2:45pm at Maxwell-Tobie Funeral Home, 573 Mill Creek Road, Manahawkin, NJ 08050.
