Mary Ann Cronin Pipkin

May 22, 1936 — February 19, 2024

Jackson, Tennessee

     Mary Ann Cronin Pipkin peacefully passed away on Monday, February 19, 2024, at Christian Care Center of Medina surrounded by her loving           family at the age of 87. 

     She was born on May 22, 1936, in Tell City, Indiana, daughter of the late Russell Andrew and Opal M. Brown Collignon 

Mary was a devoted homemaker who took immense pride in caring for her family. Mary's life revolved around her loved ones and tending to their needs with love and care. She leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion that will continue to live on through her sons: Steven Ray Cronin of Drummonds, TN; Kevin Donald Cronin of Munford; Michael Joseph Cronin and his wife Pam of Medina, TN; Dean Alan Cronin of Jackson, TN; Brian Lee Cronin and his wife Jennifer of Henderson, TN. In addition to her sons, Mary is survived by numerous grandchildren - Brandie Klinkhardt and husband Joseph, Joshua Cronin, Jeremy Cronin, Cory Cronin and his wife Lindsay, Kelci Zabriskie and her husband Billy, Ryan Cronin and his wife Sarah, Jacob Cronin and his wife Katelyn, Desirae McBride and her husband Adam, Chase Cronin and his wife Alexis, Tiffani Cronin, Tate Cronin, and Colton Cronin and seventeen great grandchildren.

In her leisure time, Mary found solace in flower gardening as she nurtured the beauty around her with a tender touch. Her green thumb was matched only by the warmth of her heart that she shared generously with all those around her.

Services to honor and remember Mary's life will be held on Monday, February 26, 2024, in the chapel of Arrington Funeral Directors with Rev. Bill Zabriskie. A private committal will follow the service.
