Mary Ann Finney Rehm Mary Ann Rehm, age 70, suddenly and unexpectedly, passed away Monday morning, January 23rd, from a possible embolism in her upper heart. We all were stunned with shock. Husband Russ Rehm and daughter Becky Dutton, immediately spread the word to hundreds of disbelieving friends and family, including son Jeremiah Rehm, son-in-law Jeff Dutton, grandchildren Spencer and Hannah Dutton, and Tyus Rehm. A memorial service for Mary Ann will be held at the Bethany Covenant Church on 18th Street in Mount Vernon, on Saturday, February 4th, at 1:00 p.m. If possible, the family would love to have you join them in this Resurrection Celebration.

Born in Seattle on September 16, 1946, Mary Ann was and is a life-long follower of Jesus. Her life-long passion has always been to be with Jesus in heaven, and while we are awash in tears, we celebrate that she now dances with Jesus. Mary Ann was and continues to be many things. A graduate of the University of Washington School of Nursing, she had worked for years delivering babies and saving lives. She was also a professional counselor, a Head Start Nurse, an amazing mother, an awesome wife, and for many years an avid quilter. She was also a world-class grandmother!

Along with her husband Russ, she rode a motorcycle across the United States and through Europe, sailed the waters of Puget Sound for many years, and organized uncounted family gatherings. As a preacher’s kid, she loved the Bible, the Word of God, the Church, the Family of God, and prayer. She was a world-class listener. Simply by her Godly listening presence, she changed the lives of many people. She loved healthy communication and righteous relationships. Because she was a friend of Jesus, she was the kind of person most all of us would like to have as our friend.

She blessed us all. We are sad to no longer have her with us; but are thrilled to know she is where she has always wanted to be! God reaches into the worst, and pulls out the best. With Mary Ann, God has done it twice: Once in this life, and now once again in the life to come! Good-bye, Love – we’ll see you soon!
