    Mary Ann was a wonderful young lady that brought so much laughter! I worked with her at UCP she was one of my consumers and I must say she was one of a kind that can never be duplicated! My heart goes out to her family. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to know her.

  6. Jill Waldrop, St. Joseph, MO and now Phoenix, AZ says:

    I grew up living down the street from Mary Ann and I was very young when she moved away. Looking back, I have fond memories of her and I can’t help but think of all the things I learned from her and her special needs, even though I didn’t realize these things until I was an adult. She taught me that everyone needs friends. She taught me that “special needs” really means “special person.” She taught me the fun way to say, “Orange” and so much more. While I haven’t seen her in nearly 40 yrs, I have to believe that heaven has another angel now. God Bless Mary Ann.

  7. Mel and Peggy Glenn says:

    Your family is in our thoughts at this difficult time. While we did not know Mary Ann personally, but are co-workers and friends of her niece, Brandy, and her nephew, Cody, we are very sorry for this loss of someone so dear to you all. God bless and keep you.

Please share your thoughts ...
