She loved to square dance, play Bunco, garden and travel. Mary Ann was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease at a young age. Though living with the disease for more than 38 years, she remained positive, joyful and grateful to God for all she had. She touched many with her positive outlook on life.
Her family would like to thank all the family, friends and healthcare professionals who cared for her, especially Joanna, who loved and cared for her for over 6 years. Mary Ann was an example for us all of a life well lived.

So sorry to here about Mary Ann - We have not been in touch for quite a while, but she was a very joyful and beautiful person. I have many early memories as Mary Ann was also my confirmation godmother. I watched a beautiful slide presentation of Mary Ann on the Parkinson web page. God bless your family and our deepest sympathy to all of you.
