Mary Ann (Daly) Hoomis

Mary Ann Hoomis, 63, loving wife of George Hoomis, died peacefully in her Ipswich home on November 27, 2018 after a long battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis and related complications.

Born on April 13, 1955 in Lynn, she was the daughter of the late James and Mary (Dalton) Daly. She married George Hoomis in 1974.  She waitressed for several years at the Porthole Pub in Lynn until her 1984 move to Ipswich, when she soon went to work for the U.S. Postal Service, from which she retired. 

Mary Ann enjoyed fishing, gardening, and giant pumpkin growing. She was a director of the New England Giant Pumpkin Growers Association and editor of the NEGPGA News Letter.  She really enjoyed organizing and hosting the NEGPGA winter Luncheon and Summer Picnic, but her greatest enjoyment was spending time with family and friends.  Those who knew Mary Ann personally knew that at heart she was a caretaker who spent her life ensuring that others, family, friends, or strangers, had whatever they needed to be as happy and healthy as possible.  She believed that a good deed should be performed every day. She was a friend of Bill W.

On October 28, 2018 her family and friends hosted a fundraiser to assist with expenses related to Mary Ann’s illness. The event was attended by hundreds of friends and family, many of whom shared the positive impact Mary Ann had on their lives, and gave both time and funds generously. It was an amazing celebration of Mary Ann and her family; and they are more grateful than could ever be expressed for the outpouring of love and support on that day. The family would like to thank the hundreds of friends and family that came out to support Mary Ann throughout her illness and hospice for their support and dedication.

In addition to her husband she is survived by two daughters, Sara Hoomis-Tracy and her husband Michael Tracy of Rowley, and Mary Katina Hoomis and her fiancé Chris Hayden of Haverhill, and her grandchildren Hayden and Amelia Tracy.  She also leaves her brothers Tom Daly and his wife Donna of Lynnfield, and Dan Daly and his wife Tammy of Oregon, her sister Colleen Beal of Londonderry, NH, nine nieces and nephews, and her beloved dog Moxie.

Please be advised that her Celebration of Life service has been relocated, and will be held 11 a.m. on Monday, December 3 in the Coolidge Hall, Topsfield Fairgrounds, Route 1, Topsfield. Family and friends are cordially invited. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, her family requests to please register as an organ donor.
