Mary Ann was born November 14, 1921 in Bucyrus Ohio to the late Joseph and Grace (Aidt) Kaupp. Being raised in Bucyrus, her family attended Holy Trinity Catholic Church and she attended grade school in the Catholic school before graduating from Bucyrus High School in 1939.

On June 15, 1957, she married Frank Summerson and they resided in Marion. She worked at the Marion Correctional Institution, then GTE from which she retired in 1985 as a data processing clerk. She and Frank renewed their wedding vows at St. Mary’s Catholic Church on their 25th anniversary..

Mary Ann was devoted to her family. She and Frank loved dining out, with Scotch and Sirloin being their favorite restaurant. She enjoyed shopping with her mother, but her greatest joy was when she and her father, Joe Kaupp, would watch her son, Joe, participate in various sporting events. They never missed an event.
