Our Scrabble Queen, lover of books, pontoon lounger, lucky slot machiner, baker of lemon bars, eager North Shore visitor, rapt listener and harmonizer of old time country music. She was a fast-fingered medical transcriptionist who never shied away from email, instagram, Facebook, FaceTime and texting.
Family was incredibly important to her and her love and support will be greatly missed.

We will miss you, Mom, with all of our hearts and strive to make you proud. Our family circle has grown smaller but tighter. Thank you, Maryanne, for all you have done for us.

Special thanks to Amy at Health East Hospice and Colleen, Bruce, Elizabeth, Angela and Mary at The Pillars Hospice for extraordinary care and support.

Visitation 12 o’clock noon to 4 PM, memorial service at 1:00 PM followed by reception on Sunday July 15 at Cremation Society of Minnesota — Saint Paul Chapel 1979 Old Hudson Road 612-789-0404.
