Obituary for Mary Ann Rains-Olin
Mary Ann Rains-Olin, 89, Gettysburg, PA passed away Saturday, July 23, 2022, at the Gardens at Gettysburg.
She was born June 4, 1933, in Kershaw, SC, the middle-child of the late Rev. Eugene B. and Velma Parker Lowery. She follows her brothers and sisters, Donald Lowery, Jean Guest, Sandra Cobb, and David Lowery.
Mary Ann’s life-journey took her from her beloved South Carolina to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, and back to Charleston South Carolina where she was an office manager and executive administrator. She retired in 2017 and moved to Gettysburg, PA to be near her family.
She was a lifelong pianist who began playing at her father’s church and continued playing her entire life. Mary Ann enjoyed sunny days on the beach and sailing in the Charleston area. She was also very involved with the Charleston Symphony League and Charleston Historical Society as a volunteer and docent. Everyone she met would attest that she always placed people and life experiences above all else. Mary Ann will always be remembered as “the brightest smile in the room.”
Mary Ann is survived by a daughter, Andrea and her husband David Donahue of Gettysburg, PA, a son, Dean Batson and his wife Kathy of Reading, PA, eight grandchildren: Stephanie Dotzel, Brittany Burkhardt, Jessica Kendall, Kelly Sanders, Mackenzie Custer, Reed Huntzinger, Elyse Batson, Barrett Huntzinger and nine great- grandchildren.
Funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the American Diabetes Association, 150 Monument Road, Suite 100, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Online obituary and condolences available at
