Mary Ann Bowerman age 75, of Orleans, passed away Friday, May 26, 2023 at Corewell Health Butterworth in Grand Rapids. She was born July 7, 1947 in Hastings, MI, the daughter of Chester C. & Mary L. (Hanson) Cramer. She loved helping her family and friends. She enjoyed making gifts rather than buying something new. This fueled her passion and love of sewing and baking. She enjoyed cross-stitch, crocheting, playing cards, and flowers. Her passion, however, was quilting. Many family members and friends were blessed by the gift of a beautiful handmade quilt. Over the years, she worked for several local nursing homes and drove for the EBI Sheltered Workshop of Ionia County. Her final job was with DHL where she was employed for 20 years. Mary Ann is survived by her husband Ralph; children Cheryl (Chad) Shook of Hastings, MI; Christopher (Tracy Borre) Bowerman of Plano, IL; and Carl (Lacey) Bowerman of Grand Rapids, MI; 5 grandchildren James Barnum IV (Bianca Picking), Kaitlyn Shook, Logan Shook, Christopher Bowerman II, and Allison Bowerman; one great granddaughter, Alaura Barnum; brother Chester W.A. (Debra) Cramer of Venice, FL; and her sister Cynthia (Bruce) Shade of Hastings, MI; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents.
