My condolences to the family, Mary Ann was my tap teacher growing up and also a wonderful woman, she was also friends with my Mom and Aunt Mary Anne growing up in Stowe. My Mom also recently passed away this Christmas season so hopefully they are together again in peace and joy. Paul and Lisa I am very sorry for your loss
