Mary Ann gave her life to the LORD when she was a very young girl. Her faith in GOD remained steadfast until the very end. She accomplished many goals in her lifetime; however, she would tell you the greatest accomplishment was the two babies that she was blessed with. She talked about how special her children were to her. She didn’t work out of the home until her kiddos were older. She needed to be their “Mother”.
She was a member of Hillsdale United Methodist Church, American Legion Ladies Auxillary Unit 62, and a former member of New Salem Chapter Order of the Eastern Star #38.
Mary Ann will be missed by many. Her passing has left a vacant spot at the family table and her community.
