Mary Ellen (Clouser) McCann, 91, formerly of Surf City, Long Beach Island, NJ, died March 11, 2021, at Chestnut Knoll, Boyertown.
Born April 14, 1929, in Oley, she was a daughter of the late Hunter and Clara (Wentzel) Clouser. She is predeceased by three sisters and one brother: Sarah Clouser, Grace Clouser, Edith Clouser, and John Clouser. She is survived by her sister Jeanette Jaworski, of Florida.
Surviving are her three children: Scott H. McCann, Kathy M. Evans, and Jay D. McCann and wife Katherine. She is also survived by four grandchildren: Dr. Corey M. McCann, Elizabeth (Libby) M. Luckhart and husband Zachary, Mia E. Moll and husband Bryan, and Dr. Allison J. McCann and husband Dr. Milo Crimi. Mary Ellen cherished time with her three great-grandchildren, Arlo and Isaiah (Ike) Luckhart and Bodhi Moll, and her many close friends including her long-time devoted friend, Jodi Fitzgerald.
Mary Ellen was a 1947 graduate of Oley Valley High School and attendee of Albright College. She was employed as a layout operator with Western Electric/AT&T for 27 years, retiring in 1985. She was an active member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Brant Beach, NJ.
Mary Ellen, who went by Me-Me, was a telephone pioneer who loved corresponding with friends and family both far and near. Sometimes called "The Sage of Surf City," her wisdom was only exceeded by her genuine kindness and concern for others. Known for gifting mystery items from yard sales, often explained with only a lyrical Pennsylvania Dutch saying, her smile, humor, and warmth will be deeply missed.
