Mary Ann Wright Lyman
1954 ~ 2016

Mary Ann Wright Lyman, loving wife, Mother, Sister, Nana and friend passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family on Thursday September 1, 2016. She leaves behind a beautiful life legacy after a determined fight with cancer.

Mary Ann was born June 2, 1954 in Roosevelt, Utah. She was the youngest of three girls, born to C. Leland and Carol Wright. She grew up in Duchesne, Utah where she helped her Father and Grandfather on the family ranch until she graduated from Duchesne High School and furthered her education at Utah State University. She met her husband Kent in 1974, while working at a bank and they were later married in the Manti Temple on May 23, 1975. They shared 41 wonderful years together.

Mary Ann loved animals all throughout her life and was never without a pet, whether it was cats, dogs, or even a fox. She lived for gardening and usually had a yard that neighbors envied. She was talented in many areas, but she truly loved her career working as a legal secretary, and did this for 28 years.

Mary Ann was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She held many different callings including Primary worker, Relief Society teacher, Cub Scouts, but her favorite was Young Women’s.

Her parents, C. Leland and Carol Wright, precede MaryAnn in death. She is survived by her husband Kent Lyman and their four children, Amanda (Mike) Deuel, Michael Lyman (Gwen & Cooper Coleman), Dallas (Cami) Lyman, and Ryan (Janneal) Lyman. Sisters, Carolyn (Bill) Eck , and Linda (Walt) Schriever. She is adored and will be greatly missed by 10 beautiful Grandchildren, McKenna, Kaden, Shelby, Hunter, KayLee, Taylor, Mason, Alexis, Noah, and Karter. The kids called her Nana and loved to come to her house and play games in the yard or make s’mores over the fire pit. Nana was always up for a fun game or a mean hand of Crazy Rook, which she usually won.

Our hearts are broken that Mary Ann was taken too early from this life, but we remain in awe of her dignity, courage, grace and unending love for her family and friends. She will be fiercely missed!

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 11:00 am at the Manila 8th LDS Ward Chapel, 3785 West Box Elder Drive, Cedar Hills, Utah. Family and friends may call on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah and again from 9:30 to 10:30 am on Wednesday at the church prior to services.
