Mary Ann was a loyal Springfield Lasers Tennis fan and always had a smile and kind word to share with our players and staff. She will be missed by our Lasers and Park Board family. Our thoughts and prayers are very much with Bob and other members of her family and friends.

In Sympathy and Friendship,

Every memory I have of Mary Ann makes me smile.
This extremely strong woman who was loved by so many has been an inspiration for me since the day I first met her at Commerce Bank in 1984. I am going to miss my friend terribly but I also know she would let me have it twice over If I allowed sadness to dictate my actions.
To Virginia and Mary Ann's family, We lost one of the good ones.
I ask God to grant you the strength to get through this very difficult time.

My sympathy to the family of Mary Ann and Virginia. She fought a long battle with her illness and a courageous one. Mary Ann was one to remember with her outgoing personality and especially with the "joke file" that was shared with many of us. I met Mary Ann in 1971 when I went to work at Commerce plus worked closely with her for many years. God speed you, you are now well; Rest in Peace.
