Born on August 30, 1940 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Ann and Rudolph Herzog. Maryann will be forever remembered by her caring husband of 57 years, John Dalgliesh Whalen, Sr.
She is also survived by her four children and spouses: John Whalen Jr. (Beth), Ann Travis (John), Bridget Gabriel (Cody) and Cathy Mulqueen (Kevin). She was the loving Nana to her 10 grandchildren; Lauren Whalen Scherwin (Jerry), Allison Whalen, John Travis Jr., Brittany Travis, Ronnie Gabriel, Rudy Gabriel, Ryan Gabriel, Caitlin Mulqueen, Annie Mulqueen, and Jack Mulqueen. Also survived by her brother, Rudolph Herzog (Carol) for whom she loved dearly, and many relatives and friends to whom she treated as family.
Maryann, our matriarch, enjoyed gatherings which celebrated life. She treasured sharing fond memories through her stories, writing notes to friends, baking, knitting, and of course sunsets and days on the beaches of Strathmere, New Jersey. Maryann was devoted to God and had a fond place in her heart for the Norbertine Priests and the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart.
