Born June 11, 1975 in Hagerstown, MD, she was the daughter of Rev. Lauren Sr. and Louise “Pat” Yost of Clear Spring.
Mary Ann was a 1993 graduate of Broadfording Christian Academy and a graduate of Award Beauty School.
She was of the Christian faith. Mary Ann loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we know she is very happy in His arms as she always said “Jesus always understands me.” Her parents will miss her phone calls asking them for prayer.
Mary Ann was a professional waitress at various restaurants and loved to serve people. Her customers often followed her to her places of employment. She had a big heart and was there for others.
She was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and collected panda bears.
In addition to her parents, Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 18 years, Dewayne Getridge and her son whom she loved very much, Dylan Scott Getridge, of Boonsboro; two brothers, Lauren Lee Yost Jr. of Hagerstown and Douglas “Big Ed” Yost and wife, Amy, of Williamsport; a sister, Tammy Sue Yost Robinson and husband, Dereck, of Darlington, SC.; and a cousin whom was raised as a sister to her, Kathy Yost McIntyre and husband, Russell, of Hagerstown.
She is also survived by her “best friend” Marley Grace, her great-niece, who always showed her love and told Mary Ann, “I will never leave you;” and a large loving extended family.
