Mary Alice Mann Von Colln

June 21, 1943 — January 20, 2023

Ogden, UT – Our beloved mom and grandmother, Mary Alice Mann Von Colln, passed away peacefully on January 12, 2023, in Ogden, UT at the age of 79.


Mary was born June 20, 1943, in Pittsburg, CA. to James Robert Beaton and Betty Jane Goldsberry. She was the oldest of four children. Following Betty and James’s divorce early in her life, Mary, her brother Jim and mom Betty moved to Challis, ID and then on to Ogden, UT where they made their home. On March 15, 1947, Mary’s mom Betty married Joe Mann whom as Mary would say “was my true father”.


Mary graduated from Weber High School in 1961. On April 17, 1964, she married the love of her life, Robert “Bob” C Von Colln. Together Bob and Mary raised three sons.


While she had many jobs throughout her lifetime Mary worked for Morris Travel and owned a cleaning business, cleaning base housing at Hill Air Force Base. Mary enjoyed crafts, crocheting, and knitting but her greatest love in life was her family. She loved spending time with her sons and grandchildren; this she said, “made her heart full”.


Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; her parents, Joe and Betty; and her younger, brother Joe “Little Joe” Mann (Carol).


Mary will be deeply missed and is survived by her big brother and best friend, Jim Mann (Joyce); sister, Carlene Christiansen (Boyd); her three sons, JC Von Colln (Lisa), James Von Colln, and Jeff Von Colln (Nicolette) and her five grandchildren, Tyler, Bryson, Andie Pulsipher (Jacob), Anthony (AJ) and Ashley; along with many nieces and nephews.


A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 2 p.m. at Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary, 3408 Washington Blvd, Ogden, Utah. Interment, Lindquist’s Washington Heights Memorial Park, 4500 Washington Blvd.
