Mrs. Mary Ann Schuerman, of Riverview Drive in the town of Grafton, passed away unexpectedly at her residence on Feb. 27, 2015.

Mary Ann was united in marriage with Daniel Sylvester on May 31, 1969, at St. Sylvester’s Catholic Church in South Milwaukee. The couple lived in Milwaukee and raised three sons before welcoming a daughter later in life. Mary Ann earned her bachelor’s degree in anthropology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1979 and took “her dream position” with the Milwaukee Public Museum. Mary Ann later married Michael Schuerman on April 29, 2000, at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Milwaukee and the couple moved to Grafton.
