Mary Ann Reed, 47, of Taneytown, died Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012, at Carroll Hospital Center.

Born July 23, 1965, in Baltimore, she was the daughter of Barbara Allen Daily and husband Anthony, of Baltimore, and the late Nelson Allen.

She was the owner of Mary Ann's Tea Room in Taneytown. She graduated from the Medix School of Towson and was a certified phlebotomist and also worked as a hospice nurse.

She enjoyed cooking, cleaning, sunflowers, the outdoors, fall season, a nice hot cup of tea and was very spiritual.

She enjoyed time with her family, especially her children. She enjoyed providing comfort and reassurance to those in need and made sure that her children had something for every holiday. She always made sure there was a hot plate of food every night even after working 12 to 16 hours nursing and waitress shifts.

Garland Jr. and Rotha "Rocky" Garland, both of Taneytown; daughters Kayta Gonzalez and Cassidy Caldwell, both of Taneytown; sisters Mary Mo Walker, Carrie Day, Elizabeth Allen, Carol Allen and Sandra Callis; a stepsister, Terry Allen; a stepbrother, Nelson Allen Jr.; grandchildren Thomas Devilbiss, of Florida, Phillip Zion, of Ellicott City, Paul Knauer Jr., of Ellicott City, Natalie and Brooklyn Garland, and Lashay Gonzalez, all of Taneytown; a grandmother, Grace Grove, of Orlando, Fla.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
