MaryAnne M. Kiernan Smith
West Winfield

MaryAnne M. Kiernan Smith 72, of West Winfield, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 9, 2019. Born on November 15, 1946 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Edward and Sophia (Sterosky) Kiernan, she graduated from Little Flower High School in 1964. On September 9, 1967 she was united in marriage to William A. Smith Sr. Their adventures together allowed them opportunities to live on both the East and West Coasts and returned them to West Winfield where they owned and operated The Stone House Restaurant in Cedarville from 1979 to 1985. Mary Anne later worked and retired from MetLife Insurance in Utica after many years of dedicated service.

MaryAnne was an intelligent, hard working, supportive and empathetic daughter, sister, wife, aunt, mother, mom-mom and friend. Her life experiences, ability to empathize with others, and bubbly personality made her a confidant to many. Her thoughtfulness, unwavering loyalty, and willingness to help others at a moment’s notice made her a person that will be missed by so many others. MaryAnne enjoyed taking care of her family including her sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews and most especially, her children and grandchildren. As a sister, she enjoyed driving to both Philadelphia and New Jersey to enjoy family gatherings. Ocean City became a wonderful location full of happy and fun memories. Known as Mom-Mom, her most favorite thing to do was attend all her grandchildren’s musical concerts, football, baseball, softball and basketball games as well as cross country races. As a friend, MaryAnne hosted numerous gatherings including infamous Superbowl Parties. Andy and MaryAnne enjoyed dinner with their friends, playing games and surrounded themselves with incredible, fun and caring people.

She is survived by her husband of 52 years, William A. “Andy” Smith; her children, MaryAnne and Scott Murray; William and Kimberly Smith; and Christina and Ken Macari. She also leaves behind her adored grandchildren, Scott M. Murray Jr; William A. Smith III; Ryan E. Murray; Gabriel A. Smith; Joseph C. Murray; Sophia E. Murray; Justin Lange; and Misty Macari, as well as a great granddaughter, Raelyn M. Macari. She leaves her sisters and brothers, Edward and Edna Kiernan; Dante Ceniccola; Eugene and Nancy Kiernan; Helene McHugh; Patricia and Robert Flick; and Michael and Theresa Kiernan, as well as loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her infant son Edward Walter Smith; her oldest sister Catherine Ceniccola; her brother-in-law; James J. McHugh Sr; and her wonderful nephew Michael Flick.
