We were so sorry to hear of Mary Ann's passing. All of my memories of the entire Berghoff family are so pleasant. My Mother, Alys Schaefer Whitehouse, was named after Alice Berghoff (Mary Ann's Mother) as she was my Grandmother Catherine Schaefer's sister. Our family reunions were so much fun as it was such a happy meeting of the Klug family every August until early 2000. The thing I remember most about Mary Ann and her siblings and parents is they were always so pleasant and happy to see everyone.
Please accept our sincere sympathy.
