I met Mary Anne through my mother, Mary Marchand. My mom invited Mary Anne to join our family for Easter, Thanksgiving and at Christmas celebrations over the years. Mary Anne would always bring her special Jello dessert and enjoyed watching all the kids open their baskets or Christmas gifts.

I have one memory I wanted to share. My sister made each family a basket full of “Texas snow balls” she made of yarn so we could enjoy snow ball fights. Watching Mary Anne laugh and smile as she dodged the snowballs aimed her way makes me smile still. I believe I even saw her toss a few at us. She will be missed.

Mary Anne and I were first cousins and being only children, she and I were the only ones left on my mother's side of the family. I remember how she loved outdoor activities -- hunting with her dad and grandpa, riding her pony and playing with their dogs. I don't remember her ever playing with dolls, although she had a shelf of them. I remember her learning to dive. She would do the same dive over and over and over until she was satisfied with it. She made straight A's in school. She was very athletic: an excellent roller skater and bowler (several 300 games)! I'm sorry we lived so far apart. I think we would have gotten along a lot better as adults than we did as kids. I do remember us laughing at some of the ditzy things our moms did. They were great friends. Even though we did live so far apart, I'll miss her.

I met Mary Anne at All Saints. She implemented the Safe Environment Program at All Saints to help ensure the safety of minors and vulnerable adults.. She was a Eucharistic Minister, and member of the Golden Saints.
Mary Anne was a wonderful lady and I am blessed to have known her. She soon became my right hand counter on Monday Mornings at church. She was responsible for the Loose Cash and the Miscellaneous income. I talked her into joining the Dallas Vocation Guild and she really enjoyed attending. The year after I was president, I asked her to be president the next year. She accepted and did a great job.
She enjoyed golf as well as her yearly ski trips .
My family welcomed her at our Easter and Christmas gatherings and a few times for the 4th of July. She enjoyed watching my granddaughters grow over the years. May she rest in Peace, she will be missed.

I met Mary Ann Wood and got to know her one day after mass in the Fellowship Hall at All Saints. She was a really caring woman and someone who took her position very seriously as the Safe Environment coordinator at the church. She will be missed.
