Tosh, whom she married in 1967 and spent the next 47 years with until his passing in 2014. Together, they had two sons and two grandsons, who were the joys of her life. Nothing brought her more joy than witnessing the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. MaryAnne was a true light upon all who were fortunate enough to know her. She had a natural gift in making everyone around her happier. Her smile was infectious, and instantly brought cheer to all who surrounded her. Everything she did was centered around caring for others, whether that be for family, friends or someone she had just met. Palm trees, ice cream and petting the fur of a loving kitty were among the joys she cherished. She enjoyed travelling, and especially in discovering new places with her family.
