I just learned of Mary Ann's passing and send my condolences to you, Rev. Goldsmith, Mark and Beth. Not sure if you remember me. I shared an apartment with Bev and worked with her at Parkview. Also I lived with your family briefly before we got the apartment. You are all so special and always in my heart!

My deepest sympathies to you Wayne, Beth, and the entire family. I have such fond memories dating back to the old "chemo cafe" days at Lutheran, where through Bev I was blessed to meet your wonderful family.

She was a strong and beautiful woman of faith. I'm keeping you all in prayer as you mourn her loss.

Wayne, Beth Ann, Mark and all the family.
So sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you all. I will miss Aunt Mary so much. With her beautiful smile, her kind words and her sweet hugs she will always be part of my heart. She was a lot like my Mom and I always thought of her as another mom. I remember, how she tried to make me feel part of the family when I first met her and she always told me that I was the best gift that Doug ever gave her.
We will miss you so much Aunt Mary but you will be forever in our thoughts and heart.
God truly gained an angel with you being in Heaven. One day we will meet again and I know you will give me the biggest hug there is.
Love you
Sue (Suzy, like she called me)

Our condolences to you Uncle Wayne, Beth, Mark and grandkids! You were blessed with one amzaing, loving, caring mom/grandma, and we were blessed to call her Aunt Mary! She impacted our lives greatly - not only as our aunt but as our pastor's wife. She was a true example of unconditional love to all. Her kind, gentle spirit was seen in all that she did. We will miss her greatly and pray for comfort for all.N

We had the privilege of knowing Mary Ann a few short years at Central. Mary Ann was so delightful, kind and fun to talk to in Sunday School. We pray the comfort of the Lord for you, Pastor Wayne and family...But OH but don't you know she is being bathed in the Glory and Love of our Lord Jesus now!!!

I had the honour and privilege to live in the home of Mary Ann and Wayne (Chief) from 1986-1987. She was a second mom to me. We enjoyed many meals together and I learned from Mary Ann's gentle and humble way with people. She was genuine, the person you saw in public was just a hint of who she was 24/7; filled with the presence of Jesus; living a vibrant faith. Mary Ann your race is done. Well done good and faithful servant. Big hugs Chief, Mark and Beth. Our eternal hope: absent from the body, present with the Lord Jesus!

My heart breaks at hearing of MaryAnn`s passing but knowing that she is with Jesus and other members of her family is a pleasant thought! May God be with all of the family that remains to mourn her loss. May he comfort all of you as you will someday join Maryann in heaven. My love to all of you!
