My heart go out to the family. Words cannot express my sorrow.
Mary Ann was a beautiful person. I got to know her very well through the St. Joseph Altar at OLPH. Her beautiful smile and devotion was infectious to all around her. My condolences to her husband, children, sister and family. She will be missed. May God grant her rest with him in heaven! Love you, MaryAnn!!!

My beautiful friend, when our Heavenly Father sees your beautiful face...a completely beautiful person. I have known Mary Ann since the early 1970's. I am going to miss you my friend. I can think of you today and and see you in my minds eye. To Mary Ann's family, I know this is a great loss for you. Hopefully, in time the loss will soften. Always remember how beautiful and nice she was and how much she loved her family.
Love you and miss you always,
Glenda Perez
