Mary Ann McGrath Doepker

69, passed on April 4, 2013 after a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer. Mary was preceded in death by her parents Jim and Rose (Cohen) McGrath.

She enjoyed and had a great taste in music, was a die-hard fan of the Olympics, and always welcomed the opportunity to take a seat at the poker table.

Just learned of Mary losing her fight with this terrible disease. What a fighter she must have been. We just got in to Indy from our winter away. Sorry we did not arrive soon enough to come to the funeral home. The Doepker family were such good neighbors at Dietz Lake. Just know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I worked with Mary at Indianapolis Gastroenterology. She was one of the friendliest people and was so easy to talk to. I always loved to see her bright smile. I am sure she is smiling down on her friends and family now.

I appreciated Mary's smile and humorous approach to our relationship with each other and our patients. She really was always a pleasure to work with, willing to do what was asked and to do so with humour. Thanks to the family for sharing her with us at Indianapolis Gastroenterology. My prayers are with the family.
