Sept. 12, 1940 – June 12, 2019 

Maryann Lillian Tyndall, 78, of Egg Harbor died peacefully surrounded by her family June 12 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

She was born in Detroit, daughter of the late Michael Peter and Mary Elizabeth (Porubsky) Jurica. Maryann graduated from St. Lawrence High School in Utica, Michigan, in 1958. She married Larry Jones in Detroit in 1962. They had four children, raised in Algoma.

Maryann met James D. Tyndall on a blind date and married at Old St. Joseph’s Church, on the campus of St. Norbert College in De Pere, in 2000.  The two enjoyed traveling together and visited all the major United States National Parks, South America, Mexico, and the Turks and Caicos. Maryann and Jim loved going for dinner, cross-country skiing and biking. They were members of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Juddville, where Maryann devoted much of her time being a lector, usher, communion server, serving on the worship committee and helping wherever and whenever she was able.

She worked for the Wisconsin Label Corporation in Algoma for 25 years before retiring in Egg Harbor. Maryann had a strong love for rescuing kittens. She enjoyed volunteering at Birch Creek, landscaping and gardening. She cherished the time she was able to spend with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
