I can remember when Mary Ann got engaged. She radiated with happiness. Her life has come full circle, having three wonderful children, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. What a circle of love. Looking back, I am so appreciative she came to my brother Bill's wake, as we had the opportunity to spend some wonderful time together. May she rest in peace.

I worked with Mary Anne at General Telephone Company many years ago. She was fun to work with and a very kind lady. She will be sadly missed. Vicki Dummermuth Miller.

What a trip our cousin Mary Anne was!! Without cracking a smile, she would say the funniest things during a conversation -- with anyone -- it could have been the pope or a taxi driver -- didn't matter So much fun. Blessings to all who loved her. She left her mark on all of our families, that's for sure. The Scolati Cousins

Fred, Brenda and Rod—my sincere and deepest sympathy to all of you. I enjoyed helping Mary Anne transporting her to Cut and Curl, DrugMart and Giant Eagle while I was able. My trips to Dollar Tree for cards always proved profitable to her as she thought I did a good job always choosing the right card with the right verse for the right person. We had many a conversation about all sorts of things. She battled many health issues and realized her age was presenting many challenging decisions. Her deep love for your Dad was very evident in our talks. As the contemporary song says “I Can Only Imagine” she is dancing with Jesus and Kenny! Mary Anne is now also with our Blessed Mother, with whom she had a great devotion. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. May you all be at peace.

So very sorry to the Neff and Yosick families for the loss of our beloved Mary Anne. She was always so kind to our family and I'm sure she's already laughing with all the Moliski relatives now with Our Lord. May she Rest In Peace.

Dear Family, I am saddened to see Mary Ann has passed. I have many good memories of her and Kenny... Our families were close and did so many fun things together...I will always remember Saturday nights when we would go to each other's homes and have pop and potato chips, visit and watch tv...Those sure were the good old golden days! May our dear friend rest peacefully with your Dad in Heaven...Both deserve the best....I am sure they will all be reunited and have those great days again! Blessings as you grieve the loss of your dear Mother and Grandma....You are in my thoughts and prayers for comfort..
