Marry Ann, oh what a sweet genuine lady and friend. She loved Vaiden and all her friends there. That included my sister Elaine. Even though she moved to be closer to her sister Louise, she kept in close touch with Elaine and her church family. May Carl and family be comforted in knowing she is home now.
Prayers for the Family. Mary Ann was our next door neighbor for years. She and Louise would visit with my Aunt often.
She was always kind and friendly. She will be missed.
I followed Mary Ann as Assistant Librarian at Holmes Community College. We would see each other at library meetings and at conventions. She helped me a lot because she had more experience and I missed seeing her after she retired. She was a sweet person.
Mary Ann was well respected and loved!
She loved Vaiden, her church family, her work and many friends! She will be remembered by many!
Mary Ann and I worked together at Hinds Community College. She was a very loyal and precious friend. She was always encouraging students to work hard to reach their goals. We always got to laugh because we were forever getting each other’s mail and phone calls. Condolences to the family of this precious friend. Mary Ann Sones
