I have only recently discovered Mary Ann passed away. She was one of my fondest memories of living and working in Wheeling. I enjoyed her laugh, her sense of humor, and her strength. She has inspired me over the years and I am a much better person to have known her.

To the Children of Mary Ann,

My deepest sympathy to all of you.

I only know Andy, but have seen some of you with your Mom from time

to time. Most recently, I saw her

at Curves and looking as great as


Its never easy to lose a parent so suddenly as you have, but looking

back a few years, my father in law

died in his sleep. We were all shocked and devastated. Then, later

we watched my mother in law go down

hill in a nursing home. Now, we

believe Eddie did it the right way.

I’ve known Mary Ann since I was

a youngster growing up near your home. I can remember her driving

in her convertible with many of

you piled up in the car. She was

such a free spirit and at age 72,

she was just as youthful as she

was in her 30’s.

So, know that she is the lucky one

and endure your loss with a positive

attitude if you can. It will not

be too long before thoughts of your

mother will bring a smile to your

faces instead of tears to your eyes.

She was loved and admired by many

who knew her through the years.

Fortunately, time heals. The good

and uplifting thoughts are the ones that linger. Keep holding on.

Warmest regards,

Nancy Padden
