Mary Ann ReganJanuary 11, 1929 ~ November 22, 2017 (age 88)
Mary Ann (Schlauder) Regan, 88, of Peotone, was called home as she passed away peacefully on November 22. Mary Ann was born on January 11, 1929 to Charles and Anna (Sellers) Schlauder. She was the fourth generation in the Schlauder and Conrad families to call Peotone home. She married Francis Regan on February 26, 1949, and they raised their family in the same home in which Mary Ann grew up. They lived their marriage vows and shared their faith, love, and values with their family for 52 years until Francis died in 2001. They were founding members of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, where Mary Ann was active in the Council of Catholic Woman, including serving a term as President, and in teaching catechism classes. They were also charter members of the Peotone Historical Society. Mary Ann also was active in the community through the American Legion Auxiliary, also serving a term as President.
Mary Ann will be dearly missed by those who survive her, especially her children Kathleen (Roger) Bettenhausen, Michael (Rachelle) Regan, and Rev. John Regan; her nine grandchildren Rhea (Matthew), Ryan, Aaron, Jason (Robin), Megan, Amanda, Craig, Faith, and Michael; and her six great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her daughter Renee.
She leaves a legacy of faith, resiliency, humor, volunteerism, and tradition. Because of her faith, our certain hope is that Mary Ann’s destiny is being united with God in His heavenly home.
