Mary Ann was a kind, generous woman and anyone who knew her was lucky to call her “friend.”
She was a feisty lady who lived life to its fullest.
She worked in the nutrition services industry for most of her life and loved calling “Cudahy” home. She resided with her oldest daughter Margaret, for the past 17 years. They formed a special bond and shared many, many, good memories. Mom loved living with her, despite their multiple, crazy little squabbles. She often referred to Marge as “My Margaret.”

She was a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) for 64 years and was always proud that she was able to maintain her weight throughout her life.(Regardless of the fact that her and her “Tops” friends would not eat all day before a “weigh” in, and then go out for dinner and ice cream afterwards) She was a fierce Bingo Player and loved playing Yahtzee with anyone she could get to play. She especially enjoyed going to Kelly’s Senior Center with her very close friend, Debbie. There they would mingle with her countless friends and took part in all the activities they offered. She will be sadly missed by family and friends.
