Mary Anna Head – January 2, 1926 – November 21, 2016,  Santee, CA

Our Beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Great-Great-Grandmother, passed away peacefully in her home.

She lovingly reunited with our father, Robert F. Head. They were school playmates and friends. They married on May 30, 1947 in Akron, Ohio, having a double wedding with dad’s sister, Jean, groom was Jack Pretchel.

Mom, Dad, and we three girls moved to CA in 1957. Mom enjoyed playing on the “Forester’s” bowling league for over 40 years. She loved working in her gardens, doing needlework, crocheting, going for long walks, and fun adventures with her dear friend Evon. Mom loved decorating her home and making beautiful flower arrangements for her home. Mom also enjoyed going to Lawrence Welk Resort (Time Share), for brunch, plays, and shopping with the three of us. The Old Globe plays, going to the movies, Padre Games, and visiting friends at her favorite stores, was also things she enjoyed. She enjoyed traveling, especially to the New England States in the autumn, and to view the desert flowers in Arizona and California. Mom was a fabulous cook, a perfectionist at that. Everything she made from the main course to the dessert was incredible.
