     Mary Ann attended St. Peter Catholic School. She managed the books for her husband Charlie and son Charles as they farmed for many years.

She loved her family very much as we did her. We could not have asked for a better mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. Mary Ann will be missed.

     We would like to thank Signature Heath Care for their loving care of Mary Ann over the last four years. We would like also thank Dr. Seidensticker and Adena Hospice for helping us to get Mary Ann home to the farm for her last days. We could not have done it without their loving care.

 Mary Ann has donated her body to Ohio State University. There will be no calling hours and the family will have a private memorial at a later time.  Arrangements are under the direction of the WARE FUNERAL HOME.

     In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to Adena Hospice c/o Adena Health Foundation, 272 Hospital Rd. Chillicothe, Ohio 45601.
