  4. Donna and Family,
    So sorry for your loss. I have such wonderful memories of Mary Ann at Dunn Towers. She always introduced herself as “Trouble”, and she definitely lived up to it. She was a great woman and a pleasure to know.
    Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
    Carol Stone (the frog lady from the office at Dun Towers.)

  5. Dear MaryAnn’s Family ,
    Your mom was one of my parents dearest friends . They all had a bond that no one could break . They actually were more like family to each other . There are so many stories but just a couple I will share . When I use to babysit you guys I never minded the gig but as I told my mom there was nothing good to eat in your house ! How did you guys survive without junk food !?!? Then there was the pool story , great party going at your house until a couple of drunken people tried to get in the pool the hard way ! No I will not reveal the culprits ! Then there were the coffee in the mornings with Irene and MaryAnn when in the “old”days you could walk up the street in your housecoat ! And how about the band “The HiTones “ . Gotta go clubbing to do some polka dances ! Sooo sooo many great memories ! Going to miss you my forever friend, you were one of a kind , the BEST kind ! My deepest sympathy for all of you and love❤️ya MaryAnn !
