Mary Sienna F. Gray

April 09, 1932 - July 03, 2018

Belfast Mary Sienna F. Gray passed away peacefully on July 3, 2018.
She loved Maine, dancing, family, buttons, rocks, antiques, books, Belfast, senior college, walking the beach, Penobscot Shores, and all those she touched by just being herself.
Mary Sienna was born in Washington, DC, to Catherine R. Ford and Arthur John Ford Sr. She graduated from Calvin Coolidge High School in 1950. Mary Sienna had five children and a full-time job when she decided, at age 38, to go to college. She received a master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Bowie State College seven years later. She went on to be a licensed counselor for 30 plus years.
Mary then started a second life. She opened an antique mall, she found a love of geology, buttons, and too many other passions to list. She lived in Florida, Maryland, Washington, and finally retired to her beloved Maine with husband, Miles, who preceded her in death on March 26, 2018. She was also preceded by Catherine R. Ford, Arthur Ford Sr., a brother, Ralph Ford, a brother, Arthur Ford Jr., and a son, Mark Edward Johnson.
Mary is survived by her children, Susan Johnson, Stephen Johnson, Michael Johnson (Pat Johnson), and John Johnson (Allison Delong), and her grandchildren, Michael, Mark, and Ford, and her special cousin, Cathy Bradbury of Winterport, Maine.
We will miss her mischievous nature, her infectious smile, her blue eyes, and always always her dancing.
A funeral mass will be held at 12 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, 2018, at Saint Francis Church, 81 Court St., Belfast, Maine, followed by a party, because Mary Sienna liked nothing more than a good party, at Penobscot Shores, 10 Shoreland Dr., Belfast, Maine, with food, beverages, and dancing.
