Since retiring she and Kermit enjoyed overnight gambling ventures and bus trips with special friends Ron and Jan Klein. On Wednesdays, Mary Ann took pride in helping her son Nathan at the Hardware store. She would arrive with hot food for the staff and utility knife in hand. Her presence was loved and welcomed by the employees and customers. She was also a member of The Red Hat Society. To her grandchildren she provided endless warmth and love. Always supportive and proud, they found immense joy in sharing life's moments with her, big and small. Her beautiful smile, warm laughter and loving embrace will be engraved in their memories and cherished forever. She had an unforgettable personality and mastered a smirk that let you know she saw what you did, but she'd keep a secret just between the two of you.
