Lifting your family in prayer - my Grandmother and MaryAnn were long time neighbors and friends. We always appreciated MaryAnn and Tom looking out for her and helping in any way she needed. She always sent my grandmother cards and notes as well as visited my grandmother once she went to assisted living to bring her a little sunshine and news of the neighborhood. May you find peace in her memory and the love she shared with all. May God bless you - The McLain-DeCuir families.

Kathy and Jeff,
So sorry for the loss of your mom. My mom and I were going over all the special times spent with your family. I remember the first time we saw MaryAnn changing the oil in the cars and we were so impressed. Your mom led such a fun and exciting life, always willing to try something new.
Thinking of you guys.
Kelley and Audrey

Mary Anne was such a special person. We loved seeing her every time she came into the office. She always had a smile her face, and was such a genuine, caring lady. She will be truly missed. We all loved Mary Anne and Tom, and know they are now reunited. I send my love to the family.
