"Mother to all"
When family circumstances required her, at the age of 12, to take over responsibilities of caring for her 5 younger siblings she embraced the role and never stopped mothering.
MaryAnna and Jack's Wedgwood home of 42 years was where the Beezer and Smart cousins, neighborhood kids, and in later years their grandchildren, could always depend on a warm welcome, the backyard pool, popsicles and freshly baked cookies.
MaryAnna rests comfortably now having reached the destination her strong, Irish Catholic faith promised her.
Our most sincere appreciation to the staff at Riverside East for caring forher as lovingly as she had for others.
