Because of my dear friend Mary O'Donnell (Mary Ann's daughter), I know what a beautiful person Mary Ann was, inside and out. She has left this earth far better than she found it. I am especially grateful to her for giving us her wonderful family and for her advocacy around the horrible disease that took her away. My deepest sympathy to the family.

It is with great sadness that I am expressing condolences to MaryAnn's family.I knew this lovely lady for a very long time. Yes, she was vibrant, funny and so very caring. The last few years she so enjoyed singing in St. Maria Goretti's choir, even though at times it was a challenge for her. When I think of her, I will think of her beautiful smile and know she is now at peace.
