Mary Anne was dedicated to her faith and her family. She loved to play cards and games with her grandchildren especially, Nickels, Uno, Phase 10, and Candy Bingo. Mary Anne also enjoyed travelling with her husband and friends; vacations with her family in August were also a high priority.

Though Mary Anne was small in stature at 5’ 1”, her friends referred to her as “tiny but mighty”. She enjoyed playing cards, scrapbooking at the church, walking, reading, and baking cookies for the holidays with her grandchildren. Above all she cherished time with her family and friends in the backyard hosting a good ole fashion BBQ.

Visitation will be held on Friday, February 9th from 2-4 pm at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, NJ 07701. A private Crematoria will take place in Center Moriches, NY.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project.
