Maryann worked for the City of West Haven tax office for many years with her close friend Pat Howard. She also had a close friend Carol Hostler that she knew for much of her life. She finished her career working for Stop and Shop in West Haven where she made many friends and touched many hearts.
She enjoyed Square Dancing, bingo as her game of choice, and watching Red Sox games, as well as spending time at Sebago Lake, with her son Martin. She had 2 pets that were very close with her for her life, Cocoa a poodle mix and Lucky a shih tzu mix for the past 16yrs.
She enjoyed drawing very much in her books and watching the Lifetime channel. She has touched so many people lives over her lifetime and will be missed by many people, most of all her best friend and son Martin.
Like to send a special Thanks to the Connecticut Hospice for making my time with my mom special and helping to eliminate the pain she has lived with for many years. They are special people and went above and beyond to make her final days bearable.
