04/12/1965 - 08/13/2018

It is with deepest regret that I announce the death of our beloved Maria. After an 8-year battle
with metastatic breast cancer, she passed on the evening of August 13th, 2018 surrounded by close 
friends and family.

She is survived by me, her husband; her children, Elena Kay and John-John; her parents, John and 
Kay Sprankle; her sister, Mischael McKenna; her husband, Michael; and their sons, Sean, Kellan, Ian 
and Brennen; as well as many extended family members and a large community of friends.

Mother, Author, Provocateur, Thorn in my side, Love of my wife.

Elena Kay, John-John and I would like to invite her community to a celebration of her life. A 
memorial service and celebration will be held at our home on Saturday, September 8th at 4pm. In 
recognition of Maria’s love of festive occasions and food, we will host a gathering replete with 
food and spirits after the service and ask that those in attendance bring a favorite dish to share.
To help with this we are setting up a sign-up with suggestions and more details online at:

Please note that parking will be a challenge and we ask that attendees not park at our home. 
Instead, we ask those planning to attend to park in the Olentangy Highlands Neighborhood, which 
abuts our property, along the streets Werner Way or Elmers Court and walk to our home.

Our neighbors, Randy and Michele Banks, have graciously offered the convenience of cutting through 
their property. The cut through access is located at 842 Werner Way, 43085, MAP 
( Please be respectful of all our neighbors so as not to create 
an inconvenience.

We look forward to seeing everyone and celebrating Maria’s story.

With Love,
