October 1, 1968 - September 16, 2021
Mary Ann Bennett passed away on September 16, 2021, just a few weeks before her 53rd birthday. She was surrounded by her family and loved ones. Mary was born on October 1, 1968, to Bob and Dorothy Botni in Marietta, Georgia. She lived in the same house throughout her childhood attending Sprayberry High School and upon graduation attended Kennesaw College. After college, Mary began working for First Union Bank. It was then that Mary met Greg Bennett, and the two married in 1991. They went on to have 3 children together and bought their first house in Powder Springs, Georgia in 1993 before their first son was born. Mary would get her real estate license in the early 2000’s and would finish her working career at Carson Tool and Mold in Kennesaw, Georgia. Mary was a lover of animals, especially dogs. From her childhood years and the family dog, Benji, that they shared; to her family’s first dog after marriage, Chino, she always looked to help animals in need to have a home. She was a lover of crafts, often creating pumpkin and Christmas themed decorations for others during the fall and winter. Mary loved watching her 3 children compete throughout their childhood in various sports and was always the loudest one on the sidelines supporting each one of them. She would continue to cheer them on in their adult lives often having daily calls with each of them. Mary loved watching Seinfeld while at her house and spending time with her dogs Chino, Peyton, and Sunny. She had many friends that loved taking her out to dinner or go shopping with her. Mary’s perfect day would be out riding a motorcycle with her Fiancé Adam. Mary was preceded in death by her sweet and wonderful father Robert Botni, her maternal grandparents Peter and Mary Kavrakis, and paternal grandparents Julius and Ola Botni. She is survived by her mother Dorothy Botni, sister Roberta Cable (Mark), Fiancé Adam Blair, dogs Peyton, Sunny, and Lexi, granddogs Dempsey and Beckham, and her 3 children Anthony Bennett, Sydney Bennett, and Colin Bennett whom she loved and would move the world for.
