Mary Ann was happiest when she was in the kitchen surrounded by family and friends. She considered everyone’s child her own, never refusing a home or a hot meal to anyone in need. She was strong in faith and prayed daily for her loved ones.
Mary Ann lit-up whenever her grandchildren and great-grandchildren came to visit. She always said that she shared a special connection with Adam, her first-born grandchild. She admired Zackery’s loving heart. Making the Jesus cake with Kacie was a tradition that they both cherished. She taught Heston how to make her delicious country gravy. Jessica was lucky enough to inherit her grandma’s spunk. She often praised Kenna’s beauty.
Mary Ann’s love for her children was unmatched. She often recalled with a laugh when Eddie Arthur whacked Grandpa Art in the head with a stick. She was a best friend to both her daughters, Tina and Terry, and she was so proud of her son, Leslie. The love of her life, Roscoe, stole her heart and held her hand for 55 years. Now they are together again.
