Our deepest sympathy in your loss of MaryAnn. I remember when she first came to Reading. We were kids down the street. Lived in same neighborhood till she left Reading. She did a lot of embroidering for our family over the years. She will be missed. Larry and Sheryl Daglow

My sincere condolences to MaryAnn's family. I knew her when I was in high school with her daughter Vicky. She was a wonderful woman, always warm and kind to me.

Mary Ann was such a sweet talented lady. She could design and embroider special occasion sweatshirts, make costumes, repair wood spindles, bric-a-brac,etc. on her house. How about the small fountain she made for her garden. When she and Dave danced with the Hills'n Dales Square Dance Club, she made their matching outfits. She was a fiddle player; Dave enjoyed guitar. They sang and played with the Montgomery United Methodist Country Choir's programs, performed at the Fiddlers' Conventions and Woman's Congress programs at the Hillsdale County Fair. Mary Ann was a very special lady who will never be forgotten by her beloved family of whom she was very proud. All of her good Reading area friends and neighbors share in your loss.
