Maryann was a wonderful woman and great friend. Tom and I have known her and her family for years as we were her neighbor for years. May God bless her with eternal peace and rest. RIP Maryann! Tom and Marlene Sorge
MaryAnn was such a sweet person. Knew her when they lived on the Island. Her mother, Connie, was my sister’s Godmother. She is truly an angel
Maryann always had a smile on her face and was a friend to my sister Pat.
