Mary Ann Popp, 93 of Homer City passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on October 16, 2023. The daughter of John and Mary (Lustick) Senick, she was born on December 2, 1929 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mary dedicated many years of life to N.B.O.C. Bank in Homer City where she worked as a bank teller. She was known for her warm and friendly demeanor, always having a kind word for her customers. Her daily interactions at the bank were not just transactions, but opportunities to connect with customers. She carried this same spirit of service into her weekend work, where she served many banquets with a smile on her face at various venues throughout Indiana County. After retiring, she loved the time she spent and the friends she made volunteering at Homer-Center Elementary School. Mary was a member of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church, Homer City Post 493 of the American Legion, and the V.F.W.
Mary loved to travel. She was ready to go on any adventure at any time with anyone willing. Family was without a doubt Mary’s greatest joy and accomplishment. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandma (G.G.), cherishing the time she spent with her loved ones. Family gatherings were her favorite occasions, where she would sit back and watch the laughter, love, and life unfold before her eyes. Her family was her world, and she was the heart of her family.
Mary leaves behind her daughter, Janice, and husband Jack Bell of Homer City, daughter-in-law, Debi Popp of Brush Valley; grandchildren Amanda (Ricardo) Josey, Tiffany (Brad) Potts, Janelle (Dexter Gomez) Popp, Jennette (Drew King) Popp, and Nicholas Bell; great-grandchildren Avalon, Anyah, Evangeline, Kayden, Ronin, Carter, Kamia and Lydia. Also, Brandi Rankin who she also considered as one of her own. She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Mary (Lustick) Senick, her husband John (Lefty) Popp, her son John Popp, her brothers Joseph and John Senick, and many loving brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to the Beacon Ridge staff for their loving care and support!
