Mary Ann ( Dillon) Quick , age 50, of Lake Odessa, passed away at home on Friday, August 27, 2021, surrounded by her loving family, following a battle with cancer. She was born on January 15, 1971, in Hastings, Michigan, daughter of Glen E. and Helen M. ( Wilson ) Dillon, Sr., both of whom survive. She graduated from Lakewood Schools with the Class of 1989. She has shared 17 wonderful years of her life with Burl E. Quick, with whom she exchanged vows on November 10, 2012, in Lake Odessa. Mary always kept busy working even holding two jobs simultaneously for a time, one of which was a Monday through Friday position and the other was weekends only. Most recently, she was an Executive Housekeeper for Drury Inns and Suites, helping to open and run their new location in Grand Rapids. Mary loved to be on the go, traveling somewhere, near or far, and enjoying as many outdoor activities as possible such as fishing, kayaking, camping, and even trips to the zoo. When a long-distance sojourn was what she needed, she loved to visit the Gulf Coasts of Alabama and Louisiana. Mary was a force to be reckoned with, full of energy and an indominable spirit, who will be missed by all who knew her.
