Obituary for Mary Ann Greve

December 23, 1940 - June 17, 2017
East Norriton, Pennsylvania | Age 76


Mary Ann Greve, formerly of East Norriton, PA, recently residing at Elm Terrace Gardens, Lansdale PA, peacefully passed away on June 17, 2017. She was the beloved wife of Robert W. (Bob) Greve, Sr. She was born on Dec 23, 1940 in Cleveland Ohio, the daughter of the late Paul and Irene (Wilso) Keller. She and Bob would have celebrated 58 years of marriage on August 1, 2017.  She is survived by her husband Bob, her 4 children - Denise Simoneau and her husband Daryl of Milford MA, Cheryl Fonder and her husband Stan of Pottstown, PA, Robert W. Greve Jr. and his wife Diane of Harleysville, PA and Alan Greve and his wife Aimee of Maple Glen, PA. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren- Ryan and Brett Simoneau, Elliot, Alexander, Andrew (Josh) and Grace Fonder, Robert W. III, Michael and Thomas Greve, Christopher and Matthew Greve. She is also survived by her siblings- Robert Keller of Seven Hills, OH and Jane Winter of North Ridgeville, Ohio.

Mary Ann lived with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for most of her life. She was the MS Hope Mother of the Year in 1971. She was the chapter president of the MS Hope Club of Montgomery County for over 14 years. She volunteered for the Greater Delaware Valley Section of the National MS Society for many years, where she and her husband Bob educated and supported many people with this debilitating disease.

MS did not define her life however.  Mary Ann was an accomplished singer and a member of the Sweet Adelines. She was also a talented organist and accordion player.  She loved to sculpt and many of her pieces are displayed at Elm Terrace Gardens.

The family would like to thank the staff at ETG for the love, care and compassion that they have provided to Mary Ann and to all of us. We would also like to thank the staff at Ascend Hospice for their caring support.
