She was born to Florence and Bernard O’Rourke on July 1, 1942 in Boston Massachusetts.  She had a lifelong love of learning and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Emmanuel College in Boston, University of Massachusetts with a Master’s in education, before attending Butler University in Indianapolis, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science.

After working as a Quality Consultant for Regulatory Compliance and QA Oversight of Global systems, Mary Ann retired from Eli Lily.

Mary Ann met her husband, Bob Kleyle on a blind date 59 years ago and never looked back.  They shared a love of travel, which was expressed by the many photographs displayed in their home of African wildlife and Grizzly Bears from their photographic holidays.

Survivors include her devoted husband, Bob Kleyle; two children, Ann-Marie (Ross) Gottlieb and Tom (Stephanie) Kleyle; four grandchildren, Jacob and Rachel Gottlieb, Gwen Hribernik and TJ Kleyle; four sisters, Bernadette, Kathy, Gerry, Irene, and brother, Tom.
