Doug, Mary Jo and family,
Our deepest condolences at this sad time. We have many fond memories of Maryann. She was a good friend and a wonderful neighbour. We always felt safe leaving our house knowing that Maryann was keeping an eye on things for us. Her energy seemed boundless and we enjoyed seeing her bustling around the garden or taking Buddy for his walks. Maryann's lovely smile and friendly conversation made her a delight at neighbourhood parties or even just chatting during chance encounters on the street. Please know that her former neighbours join you in missing her and mourning her passing.
