Bill and family,
I knew Maryanne for many, many years and had the pleasure and privilege of working with her for a time. I learned about her passing just now and am quite shocked and saddened. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I haven't seen Maryanne in close to 30 years. To me she will always be the cute spunky girl that knew how to laugh and could keep Bill in line! I knew that she had put in a heroic fight against cancer and surely it was the love for her girls and for Bill that kept her here so long. She will live always in the hearts of her family and those that loved her.

Maryanne and I met while attending St. Thomas Aquinas high school. We got to be good friends and really enjoyed our high school years. What I remember most was that she was always happy and smiling brightly! I am very sorry to hear of her passing.
