Mary Elizabeth Szymanski passed away during birth on Monday, October 7, 2019.

Mary had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and had several health challenges, but she was perfect in every way.

Mary will always be loved and missed by her parents, Trevor Szymanski and Kathleen Reagan of Grosse Pointe Farms. Mary is also survived by her grandparents, Charles and Joan Reagan of Grosse Pointe Farms and Marianne Garascia of St. Clair Shores; her great-grandfather, Verne Garascia of St. Clair Shores; her aunts and uncles, Kristin Reagan of New York, NY, Katyn (Adam) Oakley of Deer Park, IL and Raechel (John) Walker of Ramsey, NJ; and her cousins, Winston and Tucker Oakley and Jack Walker. She was predeceased by her grandfather, David Szymanski.

A private funeral mass took place at St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church on Friday, October 11 and Mary was inurned in the St. Paul Columbarium immediately following, where she will see the sun sparkle on Lake St. Clair.

Mary’s family wishes to thank Father Rich Bartoszek, Dr. Brian Mason, Dr. Jeanne Lewandowski, Dr. Ida Lippincott, Linda Kammer-Nelson, family members, friends, co-workers, nurses, caregivers, and even perfect strangers who have extended love and support.

Mary’s parents ask that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to Team Heart, a medical organization focused on bringing cardiac care to the people of Rwanda. Mary’s father, a cardiac anesthesiologist, traveled to Rwanda with Team Heart in 2013 to care for patients during their cardiac surgeries.
