OSWEGO, NY – Mary Ann Boysman, 55, of Oswego, passed away unexpectedly early Sunday morning October 6, 2013, in Phoenix, Ariz.
Mary was born in Oswego on a Christmas morning to Robert and Betty Jane (Stoll) Boysman.
One of three beautiful girls, she attended St. Paul’s Academy and graduated from Oswego Catholic High School, class of 1975.
Her diligence and unmatched work ethic earned Mary a Bachelor’s of Science in Industrial Arts / Education from the State University of New York at Oswego and later an MBA in Business from Le Moyne College.
In 1988, Mary was promoted to Senior Marketing Manager for Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation at its headquarters in Syracuse, NY, and later became Senior Marketing Manager at Plum Street Energy, (a subsidiary of Niagara Mohawk).
She moved on to become Vice President of Marketing at Harden Furniture, Inc., located in McConnellsville, NY, where she remained for seven years.
Mary pursued a new career path with Aspen Dental Management, Inc., in 2004, and within three years she was promoted to Vice President of Brand Marketing and Advertising, where she remained and was fundamental in building their national brand from the ground floor up.
Throughout her career, Mary received numerous accolades for her great works and was a cherished employer and employee.
But, her most boastful works were her two children, Jesse and Chelsea.
Mary touched so many lives.
With her 1,000-watt smile and quick wit, she always knew how to make everyone laugh.
Mary most enjoyed spending time at her family’s cottage on Black Lake.
The love she had for her parents, children and extended family was as vast as the ocean.
Generous and kind, Mary was always there for her family.
She continues to be the rock of strength for her loved ones.
