Mary Agnes Gradwohl, 99, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her daughter, Kathleen Evely and son, Robert J. Gradwohl on April 26th, 2022. Mary was born August 8, 1922, in Johnstown, PA to Edward B. Little and Irene (McKernan) Little. Mary was later joined by her sisters, Irene Benson and Sue Ann Little Conway as well as her brother, Edward B. Little Jr. who all proceeded her in death. Mary attended Johnstown Catholic High School where she met her future husband Robert H. Gradwohl, and they later married at St. Mary's Basilica in Phoenix on August 16th, 1947. Mary relished in her life as a traditional housewife caring for her husband Bob for 62 years until his passing, and being mother to their two children. Mary and Robert were founding members of St. Simon & Jude Parrish and we're fully engaged in church activities and school activities at SSJ and later Bourgade High School and Brophy Prep. At Saint Simon & Jude they made many friends and cherished those friendships throughout the years. Mary and Robert enjoyed numerous cruises with friends and traveled far and wide during their life together. Mary never met a stranger and enjoyed making new friends and liked nothing better than getting a group together to enjoy each other's company. Mary is survived by her daughter Kathleen Evely (John), Robert J. Gradwohl (Sharon Ann) grandchildren: Deanne Jeffries (Dustin), David Evely, Matthew Gradwohl, and great grandson Robert Dodge Jeffries.
