Aug 2, 1967 – May 2, 2021

Mary Ann was the embodiment of all things mom. She loved hard and with a ferocity you felt down to your core. If you were one of hers you knew. Her child, her husband, family or friend, if you were someone she claimed in life you knew. She was always very passionate about being present in the lives of her family and helping anyone in need. She was a loving and strong person who’d hug you back together and put you on your feet, or… kicked you in your hinny if you needed it. Family meant everything to her and she spent everyday proving that very thing.

Not one person fought harder for you or with you, then Mary Ann. She taught her family what it meant to be there unconditionally. Family has no bounds, conditions or lines and when you’re in it you’re in it forever. In the same room or far across the nation, where ever her family ended up she’d always be the one reaching out to you. Letting you know she cared. Read the rest of this entry »
