She was the owner/operator of The Dogwood Tree, her gift shop. Along with her husband, Don, they opened and operated Don's Ice Cream Palace for several years. Most recently she worked at Barnes Flowers and then M&D-R-Nuts. She went on to volunteer at Lourdes Hospital; even while she was sick she touched many lives.

Maryann's family would like to thank Dr. Stephen Paushter and Dr. Arun Sheth for their years of care. Special thanks go to the many dear nurses and staff members of Broome Oncology. In her last months, the caring and devoted nurses and staff on Lourdes' 1 Ross, 1 West, Hospice and Bridgewater 4A cared for Maryann as if she were their own family. A Funeral Mass will be offered at the Church of Saints John and Andrew, Vestal Avenue, Binghamton Tuesday at 10 a.m. Entombment will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City.
