Hello to Maryann's family, Sorry for your loss. Maryann was very nice to me. I'm the Lady who delivered her the meals. Sometimes Maryann would invite me inside for a cup of coffee made in that little old coffee pot on stove. Said she didn't like the newer ones. She also made baked apples. And they were tasty. I loved listening to her talk about Family & her life. I will miss her very much. As I'm sure her family is. May Maryann RIP. Olivia Line
