Obituary for Mary Spademan

February 27, 1928 - November 8, 2020
Avon Lake, Ohio | Age 92

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend


Mary B. Spademan, 92, a lifelong resident of Avon Lake, passed away Sunday, November 8, 2020 after a long illness. She was born February 27, 1928 in Lorain, OH to parents Martin and Agnes (nee Sudor) Kozarec.

Mary was a homemaker that loved collecting antiques, decorating her home, and working in her garden. Her creativity in this regard led to her home being on tour twice. She volunteered for more than 20 years at the Our Lady of the Wayside resale shop and coached her husband Richard's little league team when he was unavailable due to work commitments. Mary traveled to Europe with her son to re-connect with her relatives in Slovakia, did a cross country trip with her brother and spent New Year's in Hawaii one year. Not one to generally sit still, she did love spending time at the beach, where many family and friend vacations are fondly remembered. Mary was a founding member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church and daily prayed the rosary.

She is survived by her loving children Richard Spademan, Robert Spademan and Ronald (Jan) Spademan; cherished grandchildren Ashley and Taylor (fiancé Nick); dear brother Frank (Sue) Kozarec; sister-in-law Jean Kozarec and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her high school sweetheart and beloved husband Richard; parents and twin brother Joseph Kozarec.
