Aunt Maryanne was one of our favorites! We cannot think of her without smiling! We remember the fun time we had on their boat on the Mississippi in the late 60's. So grateful we took a retirement trip from NY to Iowa in 2012 and got to spend a very extra special afternoon with Maryanne and other Aunts too. A wonderful memory for us! Our thoughts are with Matt, Stephen and Phil. We loved your Mom!

I will miss Mary Ann. She and my mother shared birthdays and shared many times together at Reflections and Parkview. Manor. I will always remember playing cards and bingo with her. I will never forget her beautiful smile! Melanie Stutzman (Karen Jehles daughter)

I have precious memories of staying at aunt Mary Anns home playing with my cousins. She made it feel like my second home. God bless all the family.
