Mary Beth (Mann) Chassagnol, age 69, of Eragny-Sur-Ept, France, passed away peacefully on Nov. 28, 2020, her loving husband, Andre, at her side. She was born Sept. 14, 1951 to Janice Mann-Beech of Albion, and the late John Ray Mann.

Mary Beth was an artist. This was obvious since childhood. Following graduation from Kendall High School in 1969, she attended S.U.N.Y. Oswego, majoring in Theatre Arts. Her career took her to New York City where she used her education and talents painting theatre scenery. Mary Beth did some traveling, including a vacation to Paris, France, where she met her future husband, Andre Chassagnol. He says it was “love at first sight” for him. They married in 1984 and made their home in France. Mary Beth’s artistic creations and touches adorn the homes of family and friends.

Besides her father, she is predeceased by her brother, John. In addition to her mother and her husband, she is survived by her sister, Lisa Brown (Dave Palmer) of GA, sister-in-law, Mary Frances Gordon of MO, brother-in-laws, Jean Francois Chassagnol and Pierre Chassagnol of France, niece Jamie Brown and nephews Daniel Brown and John Mann.

A memorial service for Mary Beth will be planned at a later date. Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1120 South Goodman St., Rochester, NY 14620; Gaines-Carlton Community Church, P.O. Box 241, Albion, NY 14411; or The Cobblestone Society, P.O. Box 363, Albion, NY 14411.
