Mary Ann Sammarco


ary Ann Mills Sammarco, died on Nov 30, 2017 at Pacifica Senior Living while under Hospice care.


She was born in Tampa on Nov 7, 1942 and attended Hillsborough High School (1960), The USF Charter class (1963) and the University of Tampa (1976-1979). Mary Ann retired in 1997 after 32 years of dedicated service to the education profession, her last class at Folsom Elementary School. She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarice G. Mills and Leland Dee Mills, Sr.


She is survived by her brothers, Leland “Lee” Dee Mills, Jr. and his wife Rosalind, Barry G. Mills, nieces Vanessa and Andrea Mills and her husband of 22 years, Louie Sammarco, who fell in love with her at first sight and loved her more and more each day. Mary Ann had a way of winning your heart with kind words and deeds and it was truly a blessing to have her in our lives. No words can express how dearly and deeply she will be missed. Louie made it a habit never saying “Goodbye” to Mary Ann, always it was, I’ll see you later. Mary Ann, sweetheart, I’ll see you later.


A private ceremony will be scheduled at Sarasota National Cemetery.

Friends and family are invited to share a memory and sign her guestbook below.
