Ann E. Salyer Hindman Ralph

June 23, 1964 ‒ June 18, 2021

Marion, Ohio

Ann E. Salyer Hindman Ralph, age 56, of Marion, died on Friday, June 18, 2021.

On June 23, 1964, Ann was born in Marion, Ohio, the daughter of Mary (O’Dea) Salyer Weston and the late Stephen Salyer.  She graduated from Marion Catholic High School in the class of 1982, and earned her medical laboratory technician certification from Marion Technical College.

Ann worked as a medical laboratory technician at the Smith Clinic in Marion, and later at Grady Memorial Hospital in Delaware.

Over the years, Ann taught herself to be a great cook.  She always loved to try new recipes, and her dishes often became the highlight of the family get togethers. She was the easiest to please at dinner table though, because all she ever needed was a good plate of mashed potatoes and gravy.  She had a green thumb, always growing her own vegetables in her garden.  She also enjoyed playing cards with her family, and binge watching new shows on Netflix.

Ann overflowed with love for her son and four grandchildren.  She loved doing whatever they wanted to do, always going the extra mile to make their time together feel special.  She was an especially great story teller, using the perfect voice to keep the kids on the edge of their seats.  She also became an animal lover, and was the family’s designated animal sitter whenever they left town.

Such a hoot to be around, Ann was so funny!  She had a silly and light hearted personality, and her family will forever cherish all the laughs they had with her.

She will be missed by her husband, Tom Ralph; son, Brennen (Natalie) Hindman; four grandchildren: Silas, Falynn, Maverick, and Slade Hindman; her mother, Mary Weston; two step-daughters: Kari (Jeremy) Fout, and Jadrian (Corey) Hale; five step-grandchildren; five siblings: Steve Salyer, Julie (Rick) Atkinson, Katie (Jon) Benson, Meg (Rodney) Knickel, and Tom (Lindsay) Weston; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Her family will greet friends from 4 – 7 pm on Thursday, June 24, 2021, at the Snyder Funeral Homes, GUNDER/HALL Chapel, 347 W. Center St., Marion. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 am on Friday, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 251 N. Main St., Marion, with Father Kyle Tennant officiating.  Burial will follow in Marion Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Marion Area Humane Society, 2264 Richland Rd, Marion, OH 43302.
