Mary Ann Greene, age 70, of Palm Beach Gardens, passed away on July 8, 2019.

Mary Ann was born in Watertown NY. As the daughter of a career Navy man, she lived in several places growing up, such as Newport RI, Jacksonville NC, Grayslake IL, Portsmouth VA, Rockville MD, and the island of Guam. She graduated high school while on Guam, and received her Bachelor of Science degree from Frostburg State College. She taught kindergarten on the Eastern Shore of Maryland before moving to the Washington, D.C., area, where she worked as supervisor of the Educational Services Department of the National Geographic Society. Mary Ann relocated with her husband to Palm Beach Gardens, FL, in 1987, where she worked for several years as the Regional Trainer for Adelphia Cable.

Mary Ann’s lifelong passion was caring for animals, especially cats. Nicknamed “Momcat”, she volunteered for several years at Adopt A Cat Foundation, most recently at their Resale Store in Juno Beach. She fostered many cats in her home, including many cats who required special care. Many of these cats were adopted to become lifelong members of the Greene family.

Mary Ann loved meals with friends, playing Bingo, canasta and trivia, and listening to (and traveling throughout North America to see) singer Josh Groban. Vacations to see family and friends were always eagerly anticipated, as were trips to visit friends in England. She enjoyed different fingernail polish styles, ocean cruises, and reading.

Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 47 years, Keith; her brother Alan Hayes (Amelia) of Montgomery Village, MD; and nephew Brian Hayes (Liliya) of Yorktown, VA. She was predeceased by her parents, Alan and Ruth Hayes of Rockville, MD.

Canasta nights at the 1901 Club will never be the same without my sweet friend's beautiful smile. I miss her so much.
I am comforted knowing Mary Ann was surely welcomed at the Rainbow Bridge by the many fur friends she had known and loved over the years.
I entrust my friend, too soon gone, to their loving care.

Since the day I met MaryAnn I knew this was the kind of person who would be a lifelong friend. She was so warm, caring and kind. I felt so lucky to have her come into my life. I will definitely miss her.

In all my memories of Mary Ann, she has a smile on her face. She brought happiness and comfort to hundreds of people . . . and, of course, critters!

I lost my best friend. Mary Ann was like a sister. Someone once asked us if we were sisters. We had many similar interests. She was my traveling companion. I'll never forget our trips to NYC to see Josh Groban in concert. My heart is broken and I will miss her every day.

I hadn't known Mary Ann that long, but she was the kind of person you immediately liked. She was fun loving and was very caring to everyone that knew her . She was always up for a game and a laugh. She will be greatly missed. I like to remember the wonderful times with her. I know she would want people to remember her with a smile,

There were a lot of special times with Mary Ann when we were all young and crazy. The "Hunt Club"...camping...and just goofing around. She always has a smile. - Al and Penny
