Mary was a great friend and a giving soul. The world is a sadder place without her. I worked with her for many years at the Ohio Department of Health and lunched with her after my retirement.

Obituary for Mary Alice Dohn

Mary Alice Dohn 1950-2016

Mary Alice Dohn

02/13/1950 - 07/19/2016

Mary Alice Dohn, 66, passed away on July 19, in the comfort of her home in Westerville, Ohio. Mary was the daughter of the late Norman and Blanche Dohn formerly of Westerville. Memorial services will be held on Monday, July 25, at Hill Funeral Home, 220 South State Street in Westerville, Ohio beginning at 12:30pm. There will be a pre-service gathering for friends and family beginning at 11:00am. Mary was born in Columbus, Ohio on February 13, 1950, to Blanche and Norman Dohn. Mary spent her early years with sister Margaret Cynthia in Westerville, Ohio and as a teen and young adult, lived and travelled extensively abroad. She graduated from Ohio University – E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, and began her journalism career in Cincinnati. Shortly thereafter, she went to work on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. It was there where she gained her love for politics. She spent the longest years of her career working for the State of Ohio within its Employee Assistance Program, retiring as Director. Mary so often applied her talents for helping others by serving on several boards including Maryhaven and the House of Hope. Her recent volunteer activities involved working with residents at The Villages at Westerville Retirement Center. Her love for family and friends was a clear and always present priority, and her hobbies were diverse and fun. Interests ranged from sports analysis with Fantasy Football to all forms of stage and screen especially Turner Classic Movies. She even displayed that love on her car’s license plate which read TCM FAN1. Her loyalty to her favorite sporting teams was second only to her beloved rescue pets. Mary is survived by her sister Margaret Stark of Bay Village OH, Niece, Mary Stark of Bay Village, OH, Nephew, Joseph (Alexa) Stark of Chicago, IL, Aunt, Margaret Haas, and Cousin, Debi Haas of Findlay, OH In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: Maryhaven 1791 Alum Creek Dr. Columbus, OH 43207 or House of Hope 825 Dennison Ave Columbus, OH 43215
