Maryann graduated from Hanover High School. As a senior in high school, she was crowned Miss Unico. Upon graduation she attended Bloomsburg University and then became a loving and devoted wife and mother. When the kids were young she loved spending summers at the Crestwood Pool where she found joy in teaching swim lessons to young children. She enjoyed her laps in the pool and loved competing in the Ron Regar River Swim. Maryann thoroughly enjoyed taking her children to visit her family owned Buttonwood Bakery. She then spent years working in retail sales. Upon retirement, she had great pride volunteering for the United Way’s Ready, Set, Read Program in Berks County. She often told stories of her interactions with kids at 10th & Penn Elementary School. 

Her greatest joy in life was raising her three boys. She shared stories of them and her grandchildren with love and pride.
