Mariann Mayberry (May 25, 1965 – August 1, 2017) was an American television and stage actress.[citation needed]

Biography[edit]

In 1993, Mayberry became an ensemble member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois. While at Steppenwolf, she was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for Actress in a Supporting Role in a Play for Time of My Life, and again for Actress in a Principal Role in a Play for Hysteria, directed by John Malkovich.[citation needed]

In 2006, Mayberry married fellow actor Scott Jaeck, with whom she shared the stage in the Broadway run of Tracy Letts' Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County.[1]

Later years and death[edit]

In early 2013, Mayberry was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.[2]

In August 2015, after a run of Grand Concourse, Mayberry retired from the stage.[2] On August 1, 2017, aged 52, Mayberry died of ovarian cancer at her sister (Melissa Hollander)'s home in Simsbury, Connecticut. Mayberry, who lived in New York with her husband of 11 years, actor Scott Jaeck, was survived by her husband, sister, and her mother, Charlotte Mayberry.[3]

The Steppenwolf Theatre cancelled that night's show as a gesture of respect.[4]
