Mary Ann had a deep love for her family, whom she selflessly dedicated her life to.
She never missed a sporting event or school function and loved volunteering her time to help others. She looked forward to being involved in the community, whether it was to accompany a music recital or to bake one of her famous coffee cakes for the St. Agnes parish. She was known as ”Mom” to everyone andalways had a puppy or grandchild in her arms.
She loved dancing! And enjoyed road trips and traveling, being outdoors, drives around town and loved roses, rainbows, butterflies, campfires & s’mores.
Mary Ann had an immense passion for and love of life with the natural ability to see the beauty in everything and the best in everyone. She had a warm and magnetic personality with a great sense of humor. She got a kick out of practical jokes, pranks, and tongue twisters. Her lighthearted nature and beautiful laughter was guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face. She was a kind, genuine and compassionate woman who loved unconditionally and touched the hearts of everyone she met. She loved helping people and always had the perfect words of encouragement and inspiration. Anamazing role model. Beautiful inside and out.
Her relationship with God was deep and pure. Even in the toughest times, she exuded faith, hope and trust beyond measure. She had an unbelievable strength and resilience that one could only strive for – she was a “farmer’s daughter”. 😊
She left an unforgettable footprint & impression in this world. Her passing has left a void that will never be filled.
