Condolence & Memory Journal

Mary Ann was a beautiful kind soul. She was a great neighbor who always tried to help anyone. She would always come up and pick Dee Dee up for bingo. Also keep everyone who drove up our road in check so no one would fly up so not one kid would get hurt. She welcomed my family into her life. She let Simmie play with Matt at her house and enjoyed chatting as she sat on her swing enjoying the fresh air. She is missed and loved. Schmitz Rd isn't the same and won't be ever again. We are here for you and the boys for anything. God bless you all.

Terri, Michele & Family,

My deepest sympathies on the loss of your mother. She and your father were always good to us growing up and I'll never forget them. It's unfortunate that we grow apart as we move away and start our own families, however those who made a difference in our early years, such as Mary Ann & Jim, are never forgotten and always in our memories. My thoughts & prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
