Im just finding out about Mary Ann. I was raised in the Assembly of God church with Mary Ann. Mary was always so sweet and loved to laugh. A few years ago she would stop by to visit. I enjoyed seeing her and reminiscing about the good old days at AG with the Stoddard girls and the Sorenson girls.. Mary loved her boys. I am so sorry for your loss.

I worked with Mary Ann for many years at the Shenandoah hospital. She always did her work with pride and integrity and it was a pleasure to know her.
I knew Mary Ann when she worked at Eveready and she was a client at Shenandoah Animal Hospital where I worked. She loved her little dog Colby and took really good care of him. She was such a sweet person, loved to reminisce about the good old days at Eveready. Her laughter will be missed.

I worked with Mary Ann at Shenandoah Medical Center and she did an excellent job. You could be sure a room was well-cleaned when she was finished. I also enjoyed visiting with her since her retirement.
To the family of Mary Ann,
I was sad to learn of Mary Ann's passing. She was a wonderful classmate at SHS. All of your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
