We were sad to hear of Mary Ann’s accident and her passing. Arlin mentioned today how much he and Betty enjoyed growing up with Mary Ann and Don and that it seemed more like brothers and sisters than cousins. Sorry we can’t make it to the funeral due to health conditions and Covid safety recommendations. Our love and prayers for the family.

I was so sorry to learn of Mary Ann’s accident and passing. She was indeed a sweetie. Not only was she a Garner cousin, but we both worked at First and Farmers National Bank—she for many years longer than I did. Please know your entire family has the love, sympathy and prayers of my family.
