She loved to dance and enjoyed listening to bands at the bowling alley in the 60's. She also enjoyed playing the piano. Mary Ann always made time for her family; she was ready to load up a car full of kids for a trip to the lake at a moment's notice. Her kids are sure they have visited every stretch of beach along Lake Michigan's shoreline. They also remember her reluctance to wear a suit because of what she called her "chicken legs".
