Mary Ann Fields, a resident of Cuyahoga Falls for 60 years, celebrated her 80th birthday on June 24. During her time in Cuyahoga Falls, she raised three children and was happily married for 56 years to the late Gerald Fields, who was a former Cuyahoga Falls and then Stow police detective.
She refers to her lovely home in the Falls as her "castle" and has always loved living here.
She spent many days with her [then young] children at Water Works Park, she has enjoyed time at the Natatorium with her peers, and is excited to see the new Front Street development where one of her granddaughters recently purchased a condo.
Mary Ann stays very active, golfing, travelling and visiting with friends and family.
She is an avid Cleveland sports fan and member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish and the Jenota Club of Akron
"Many know her to be young at heart, happy, and always willing to share a good joke," said her daughter Kathie Dougherty.
To celebrate her 80th birthday, her family is taking her on a Mediterranean cruise to Italy, Spain and France.
