Mary Ann Mandeville

August 24, 1948 — March 16, 2024


Mary Ann Mandeville passed away peacefully at Agrace Hospice Residence on Saturday, March 16, 2024. Mary Ann was born on August 24, 1948 in Madison. She spent her junior year in Peru where she became fluent in Spanish. She attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She was employed as a social worker by Central Colony for several years and then she operated an antique business out of Mineral Point. Later in her career she worked as a translator for UW Hospitals and for various Dane County courts. Later still she volunteered with the Madison Aids Support Network as a respite care worker and with the Dodgeville Free Clinic as a translator.

Mary Ann was an accomplished pianist and she would entertain the residents at her mother’s retirement home at the holidays. She gave her mother devoted care to the end of Elizabeth’s life.

Mary Ann lived for years in the country outside Dodgeville and she loved gardening and feeding the birds from far and wide. She also rescued 2 dogs, Mandy and Ariel, from a hoarding situation and adopted cats Stella, Stanley, Tux and Webster who over the years found their way to her house after being abandoned in the woods.

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Elizabeth (Meyer) Mandeville and is survived by good friend Dan Meuer and his family and by good friend Dorit Bergen. We would like to extend our appreciation to Mickie Weyer and Naomi Burney for taking care of Mary Ann and for giving her cats new homes. It gave Mary Ann great peace of mind to know they would continue to be looked after. We also want to thank the staff at Agrace Hospice for taking tender care of Mary Ann during her last week of life.

A celebration of life will be held this summer in Dodgeville. Mary Ann established a charitable fund in her name with the Madison Community Foundation and donations in her memory can be made there.
