  14. Joe, Bill & Sharon,

    Please accept our sincere sympathy. As I can remember the many times in church waiting to serve Mass and Mary Ann was there, always asking about our family, she was always concerned for the other person. She always asked about dad in the nursing home. She was truly a very special person to us. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers to the family!

    Larry & Sharon

  15. Joe, Bill, Sharon,

  17. Joe,
    Memories are God’s gift to us. My friendship with Mary Ann began in 1950 at St. Stephen’s High and her bond with our classmates will continue forever. She will be missed and will always be in our prayers.
