MARYANN (DANGO) POWERS – Of Woburn, formerly of Stoneham, died peacefully, June 27th, with her family by her side, at the age of eighty-seven. She was the beloved wife of the late Robert A. Powers Sr. 
 
Born and raised in Woburn, Maryann was a daughter of the late Dominic and Anna (Morelli) Dango. She attended St. Charles School and graduated from St. Charles High School in 1953.
 
In 1954, Maryann married Bob Powers. Together they started and raised their family in Stoneham, to whom she was devoted to. As her children got older, Maryann started to work again, Managing Stoneham Cooperative Bank. After retirement, she worked as a Rectory Housekeeper and served as a Eucharistic Minister for the former St. Joseph’s Church and then later worked at Kohls, well into her 80’s.
 
Maryann loved spending summers in Ipswich as a child and telling stories of clamming in her youth. She loved sitting in the sun, crocheting, playing board games with her grandchildren and enjoying a nice cup of maple walnut ice-cream. She was an avid Red Sox fan, game show enthusiast and loved going to BINGO weekly with her dear friend, Peggy.
 
Maryann was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She’ll be remembered for her strength, character, work ethic and sense of humor, but more importantly her love and generosity.  She was truly a beautiful soul who will be sadly missed but left behind a lifetime of love and memories.
