Mary Ann and I had been friends since we were teenagers. She and her brother Bob moved into my neighborhood after there mother passed. As it turned out they were living just behind me. We saw each other again at neighborhood gatherings and also we visited each other during the holidays.
I had no idea that she passed. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob and all the family

My wife and I bought Bob and Mary Ann's home from their parents on Euclid Ave. Mary Ann became a great freind to my three daughters, and I will always remember her..."Boy,,,,," She was a great neighbor, freind, church member and person. I see from the other notes, that her impact on her community was significant. It is a wonderful statement about someone many might have considered ordinary but who had an extraordinary impact on the people she lived among. I look forward to hearing the rest of her story along with so many other saints that have proceeded us, May we all be found in such great company! Grace and Peace she left with all who knew her.

Mary Ann, the kindest, most thoughtful and sweetest person I have had the pleasure of knowing. I will miss her cheery smile and her happy welcomes in the morning. The smiles that she brought us all with her wonderful holiday sparkles and her wonderful baked goods will be missed. You brought us so much love💗 I hope you know how much we love you!

I will miss you when I come into school early. You always gave me a cheerful greeting and brightened the day.

Mary Ann was like family to me. I've known her for about 19 years when she was my neighbor in Academy Heights. My twin daughters, Jenny and Jane, would run down to the street corner to greet Mary Ann as she got off the bus from working downtown. She came to all their figure skating shows and treated them as her nieces. She sent everyone birthday cards and a holiday was never missed. Even the week before she passed she was positive. She will be missed dearly because she touched my life and made it better.

Our family at Hair -M will miss Mary Ann and her smiling face.. She would come in smiling and always ask about everybody and how we were doing.She never forgot our birthdays, and at Christmas she would come in bearing gifts and her special cheesecakes for everyone! she was a sweetheart and we will miss her. I have been doing her hair for at least 20 years. She had a heart of gold. RIP Mary Ann

There are few people who impact the lives of so many in such a special way; Mary Ann was one of those people. Her joy for life was the greatest gift that she gave to all of us at Catonsville High. That joy was evident when she baked for us, remembered our birthdays, and coordinated her shirts and socks for every occasion. Our daily comedic banter was giggle inducing and brought me great happiness. Mary Ann was the kindest person with a genuinely beautiful soul. I am truly heartbroken and miss her terribly.
Rest in Peace, my sweet friend...

My family had the privilege of being Mary Ann’s neighbor, friend and church member for over 30 years. She never missed a birthday or anniversary and her cards always brightened our day. We shared a love of Star Trek and Mary Ann always insisted I named our son Jordi after Geordi La Forge from Star Trek the Next Generation (which I did not). She and my husband Danny had a running joke every time we sang the hymn, “To God be the Glory, Great Things He Hath Done” because the third verse included the word “transport” which reminded her of Star Trek. Danny would snicker and Mary Ann would shoot him a look as if to say, “Boy, you best behave or I’m gonna break out my wooden spoon and bust you up.” After church they would both laugh about it. On Monday, Mary Ann was transported to her heavenly home. I will miss her deeply but am glad that she will be spending this Christmas with Jesus.

Mary Ann was one of the kindest persons I've ever had the pleasure to know. I never heard her speak an unkind word to anyone, although in the administrative offices she was tested many times. Schools can be a place of gossip and rumors but she refused to ever go down that road. She wore her love on her sleeve (or colorful holiday blouse) for the people she worked with and worked for. CHS was blessed to have her and she will be missed by all.

Mary Ann was the sweetest person I have ever met. She always had the most pleasant personality with a positive attitude. She saw the good in everyone. We were total opposites but maintained a friendship for over 35 years. She always had a lemon cake for me when I came to pick her up. When she was at Mercantile, she would make her macaroons and Mandarin orange cake which we named MaryAnndarin cake. She will be missed. RIP
