She was an original and a much loved Ebby Agent. She was always fun and wanting to share a joke , a snack, something to make us laugh or had some wisdom to impart to each of us. She loved her heels and sparkles to the end! We miss her at the office. But I know she is with her husband who she dearly missed.

To Kelly, Randy, James and her dear granddaughters: I am so very sorry for your loss. Mary Ann holds a very special place in my heart. She has left so many lasting memories with me... from the time I first met her when I was in kindergarten, to even just a few weeks ago, she made me laugh, made me feel loved and deeply cherished. Mary Ann exuded warmth and caring, even when she needed to be cared for the most. I will never forget her. She was full of Yes! and Go Go Go!! and she created a feeling around her that no matter where she was, it was home. To borrow from one of her many phrases… “You Are From Good Stock”. She was Good People. The Best! I loved her dearly and I am so very grateful to have had her in my life.

"Hey, Paisano", she would always say when she saw me at realtor functions. I knew Mary Ann for over 30 years. She was always a joy to be around. She is now selling heavenly castes in Heaven. Rest in peace my friend.

We knew her as Fox.....about 20 years ago, we'd run into each other at luncheons, agent open houses and she'd say, "who are you again?" Finally she sold one of my listings and I joked with her that she had to remember my name now. She was a terrific lady and always had an opinion for sure. She enlightened all of us, each day.

Mary Ann had such a great personality - she truly was one of a kind. She was a legend and so many of us have great stories to tell where she was the main character....and a character she was. What a great woman - it was a privilege to know her.
