MARY M. LOMAC (nee MOSES) age 91, wife for 59 years of Ted; mother of Tanya and Lara (Laura McElroy); daughter of the late Clarence and Florence (nee McCracken) Moses.
Mary was born in New Concord, Ohio and studied at Muskingum and OSU. After graduating she began a career in teaching at Shore Junior High in Euclid, Ohio. There she met the love of her life and willing partner in adventure, Ted. Their courtship and early marriage included meeting for dinner after their respective weekly bowling leagues. She loved entertaining, cooking, reading, sewing, knitting, bowling and was always willing to try new things — at least once.
She organized many a family vacation adventure that incorporated learning and experiencing new places. After retirement she enjoyed time learning about and traveling to new places with the Road Scholars. She and Ted were season ticket holders of the Cleveland Orchestra, Great Lakes Theater, and Play House Square. She instilled a love of music and culture in her daughters. She was well rounded as an avid fan of the Buckeyes, Browns, and Guardians.
Over the years she and Ted hosted many a party, with good food and good friends. She always loved a worthy theme. She was thoughtful and generous and willing to help where she could. She was witty and mercurial, always trying to put a smile on the face of others. We will miss her positive nature.
