    Mary Ann and I lived together while teaching at Troy High School in 1948 and 1949. We enjoyed discussing Park College days and listening to her fine record collection. She had a great sense of humor. I knew of the Charlie Stinson family because my uncle V.E. Stephens had worked with Mr. Stinson. Our thoughts are with you. Mary Evans Kibler and Robert Kibler

    Mary Ann Stinson taught my Ancient History class from 65 to 66. She taught me a love of history that has endured to this day. She made history come alive and I feel fortunate to have sat in her class. I extend my heartfelt condolences to all of her family.
