Mary Margaret Monroe

May 8, 1947 — August 6, 2023

Mary Margaret Monroe, 76, passed away peacefully on August 6, 2023, at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Mary was born on May 8, 1947, in Republic, Pennsylvania, the daughter of John and Dorothy (Spirko) Gmutza. On August 16, 2010, she was united in marriage to James Monroe with whom she had shared 6 years of marriage prior to his untimely passing on March 20, 2016.

A graduate of Redstone High School, Mary was the owner/operator of Country Boutique Beauty Shop for over 20 years. A coal miners’ daughter, she was raised in a very small, close-knit community and though uncommon in the modern era, was raised with traditional values including, unconditionally “loving thy neighbor as thyself”, and thus very was devoted to her friends and those within her community. She was a spiritual woman with a generous, empathetic, and trusting nature, who would always go out of her way to help those in need. Mary enjoyed decorating, crafts, reading and cooking, and was also an avid collector of angels and all things crystal. As a loving mother, she had a particularly special bond with her daughter Angela, and had fondly reflected on the times they had shared cooking with each other prior to her passing. She will be missed by her son Stephen (Renee) D’Amico II, daughter Angela D’Amico, grandchildren Michael D’Amico, Isabelle D’Amico, Camille D’Amico, brother Tom (Mary Lou) Gmutza and sister-in-law Betty Gmutza. She was preceded in death by her husband James Monroe, brother John Gmutza, sister Veronica (Gmutza) Ponzianni, and her former husband and father of her children Stephen D’Amico. Visitation will be held on Friday August 11, 2023, from 10:00 -11:00 am followed by a Memorial Service at 11:00 am at Lane Funeral Homes – Roberts Clark Chapel, 180 Garfield Drive NE, Warren, Ohio 44483. In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial donation to Turning Point – Treats-N-Sweets Inc. c/o Mary Kay Tusinac, 5512 Youngstown Poland Road, Youngstown, Ohio 44514. To leave condolences to the family please visit www.lanefuneralhomes.com
