Mary Ann worked for various produce companies during her working years, then became a homemaker and caregiver for many of her beloved grandchildren. Mary Ann enjoyed helping other people and making them smile. She loved to sit in the sun and just “Be”.
She enjoyed each new grandchild as they came in to this world, and Christmas-time with them as young children was a special time for her. KFC on Christmas Eve night became a tradition still followed by many of them today.
