Mary Ann (Finnane) Bickle, age 89, a lifelong Janesville resident, passed away early Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at Mercyhealth Hospital & Trauma Center. Mary was born June 9, 1929 in Janesville, the oldest child of the late Daniel P. & Cora M. (O’Connor) Finnane. She attended school in Janesville and was a graduate of Janesville High School.

She enjoyed traveling and camping. She and Dave loved Square Dancing and were members of the Village Squares in Milton. She loved playing cards and dominoes and was a very talented Bridge player. Her greatest love was her family, and especially her beloved grandchildren! Being a red-head, she had a soft spot in her heart for her red-headed grandkids!

Waite, Virginia “Ginny” Lee, and one who died in infancy; her 3 brothers, William Finnane, Fr. Daniel P.
