My aunt Maryann was a very loving woman. A wonderful mother to her son and grandmother to her 3 grandchildren. I will miss her lovely smile and soft spoken demeanor. Until we see each other again. Mark Moody

Words can not express how much I will miss this Beautiful (both inside and out) warm hearted lady. Somehow she had a way of always brightening my day. It could be early in the morning, in a traffic jam downtown together or just a phone call to fill me in on what she's going to watch that night. Maryanne loved her family and adored the time spent with her Grandsons. She had always demonstrated Grace and will be dearly missed by All those whose life she touched. I will miss her and be forever grateful for knowing her. Carol Burke
