Maryann E. Defendorf

1957 ~ 2021 (age 63)


Maryann E. Defendorf, 63, of Springport, passed away on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse. She was the daughter of the late Gerald and Patricia Lashway Hewitt. Maryann loved her children, grandchildren and would do anything for a perfect stranger. She also enjoyed  traveling and being adventurous. Her parties were epic and night time pranks with shaving cream will never be forgotten. Maryann at times would be in the mood to go mudding in the backyard with her Dodge Intrepid covering it from top to bottom and later ask how it got that dirty. Maryann was a lifetime member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary in Montezuma and member of the Calimeri Veteran’s Post of Auburn.

She is survived,

Husband:            Kent Defendorf
Longtime Partner:           Jonathan Kyle

                              Patricia Dymock and her husband Harold

In addition to her parents, Maryann was predeceased by her Aunt Genevieve Burk.
