Mary Alice Dean, 92, of Greenville, passed away at St. Paul’s Senior Living Community on Monday, August 15, 2022.

She was born on September 12, 1929, in Bellefonte, PA, to the late Horace J. and Grace (Crawford) Hartranft. She was a graduate of Bellefonte High School and earned her teaching degree from Gettysburg College.

She married David F. Dean on August 9, 1952. She and her husband made York, PA, Hightstown, NJ, Harrisburg, PA, Milwaukee, WI, and Jerusalem, Israel, their home. She taught Kindergarten and preschool for many years.

Volunteering was an important part of Mary Alice’s life. St. Paul’s and Thiel College were near and dear to her heart. She started the Mary Alice Dean “Joining Generations” Fund at St. Paul’s which supports meaningful interactions between St. Paul’s residents and Thiel College students. Mary Alice enjoyed supporting the Thiel College student athletes at athletic events. She loved playing bridge with her friends, spending time with her family, and attending church at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and St. Paul’s.

For the past 23 years Mary Alice has resided at St. Paul’s Senior Living Community at different levels of care. She made many friends there, and the staff treated her as family. Mary Alice’s family will be forever grateful.

She is survived by her two children Linda (Barry) Oman of Greenville, and Michael Dean of Rolling Hills Estates, CA; grandchildren, Ryan (Erin)Oman; Lauren Zuschlag; Carina (Aaron) Dean; Cayla Dean; Carson Dean; 3 great-grandsons, Andrew and Benjamin Oman, Bryson Zuschlag.

    Linda, Barry, Michael, and family,
    I am sad that we have all lost a very sweet woman but know that she is now forever in the arms of our Lord. She was a big highlight to my many hours at work. I will always remember her sweet smile and our bonding over the baseball games. One thing is for certain is that her family was her pride and joy she talked of all of you often. How hard you all work and how proud she is of all of you. Thank you for sharing her with us because we all couldn’t help but fall in love with her. She will be missed greatly. Love Jenn Corp.
