Bidding Tearful Farewells to Maryann Bozza

Saying goodbye to a superbly devoted human being, Maryann Bozza. Services at OCCC, Jan 10, 4-7pm

Maryann Bozza, 56, of Newport, Oregon died on December 28, 2017. Born in Brooklyn NY to Richard and Connie Micillo Bozza, she earned a BS from Brooklyn College while working full time as a paraprofessional in the NYC public school system.

Maryann earned her Master’s degree in Marine Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2009 while working as a research scientist at the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward.

Following her Masters, she spent a year in Silver Spring, MD, on a prestigious John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship representing Alaska Sea Grant, where she contributed to the development of NOAA’s agency-wide strategic plan.

In 2010, she joined Oregon State University in the position of Program Manager at the OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center, where she led the coordination of OSU, agency and community research and academic programming at HMSC. She was also a member of OSU’s Marine Studies Initiative leadership team.

A tireless community advocate, Maryann served as a Trustee with the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation, a Board Member with the Oregon Coast Community College Foundation, and on an Advisory Committee for the City of Newport.

Maryann is predeceased by her mother Connie and survived by her father Richie, her five brothers, three nieces, five nephews, and her partner, Paul Tate.

Maryann left a deep hole in the world. One of the ways we can carry her memory forward is by working to make the world a better place. As Mary would remind us, ‘it never costs anything to be gracious’.

A celebration of Maryann’s life will be held Wednesday, January 10, 4-7 pm, at the Oregon Coast Community College in Newport.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Lincoln County Children’s Advocacy Center, Samaritan Health Services; or Maryann Bozza Internship Fund at HMSC-contact
