I am truly broken hearted to learn of MaryAnne’s passing.

She was my neighbor and good friend in Silver Lake. She was always smiling and on the go. I used joke saying she had more stamina then I did. Even though I moved we still tried to keep in touch.

My deepest sympathies to all of her family, whom she loved dearly.

I worked with MaryAnne at AT&T and have been in touch over the many years. She was indeed a force, a magical force. I treasure my times with her and will remember her always. My heart goes out to her family which she adored.
