Mary Ann was a wonderful friend and lived close to us growing up. We used to walk to Blessed Trinity together then as teens went to Cathedral for Christmas midnight mass. We were always friends. after we both were married we would get together at hers or our home. We left Wheeling in 70’s. But thanks to FB we got in touch again. She will always be my friend, most wonderful person I know. Prayers for her family, may the memories help you as she will always be with to you.

I meet Mary Ann as a neighbor in the late 50’s and my husband met her in high school as she was in the same grade. We were so very sad to hear the news and talked about our memories. I know the family will share many wonderful memories and keep them in your hearts as she will always be there with you. I was blessed to talk to Mary Ann last week before we left Wheeling. We will miss Mary Ann when we come back to Wheeling to visit. Even though we didn’t see each other for long periods of time, we caught up and it felt like it hadn’t been so long. We pray for her family during this difficult time. Sylvia & Lee Ruble
