Maryann was a graduate of Sacred Heart Academy. She attended Springfield Junior College (now Benedictine) until Sam swept her off her feet. She retired in 1995 as Vice President of Security Federal Savings & Loan. She was a member of Christ the King Church and Springfield Garden Club. She enjoyed her monthly lunch with her Sacred Heart Alumni girls, who remained dear to her. She cherished her fruitful garden, taking care of her yard and of course enjoyed shopping. She was the most wonderful mom and caretaker of everyone she loved, always there when anything went wrong, no questions asked. We will never be able to replace the wonderful person she was and will miss her dearly.
