Wow, I knew she had many friends here.

Here is the obituary


I hope Tom does not mind me sharing this with you since I know you were her dear Disney friends. In Tom's words:

"Mary Ann passed away on July 31st due to complications from a brain aneurism. She was hospitalized on July 16th and the Doctors repaired the artery that had ruptured but during the recovery period she suffered a stroke in her brain stem region rendering her brain dead. Our daughter, Carolyn, and I decided to donate her vital organs and she was able to help three people with her liver, pancreas and kidney's. She was always helping people. Last evening we had a gathering at our home to remember her and there must have been 100 people here. I cannot describe the overwhelming sadness that has entered our lives but, we know that she is still watching over us."

I miss her greatly. I am sitting here and just feel numb........

Such horriible news. My prayers go out her friends and family.

She posted the day she was admitted to the hospital (July 16th)Her last post was on the DIS Yearbook.

No, no,no, those red signs with the word STOP on them are optional if they have a white border.
I hope you like Debbie Gibson? I did not and got busted at a DECA National Convention for skipping her concert!

My thoughts and prayers are with her family. I always enjoyed viewing the Dis Yearbook and it is one of my few marked forums. I just looked at her last posts and the one of the Florida Sun is just awesome. There is even a hidden Mickey in the clouds. It is a very fitting tribute to someone who posted such beautiful images.

montessori was also a regular poster on the Thread-Killers thread.

She would pop in every now and then and leave us a cool little clip art thingey. She never said much but she brought many smiles and chuckles to us on the Thread-Killers thread. We have been missing her for the last few weeks, wondering where she was

Her last post to us was also on July 16, it is on page 236 of our thread. She said that she had been having a good week and was glad that it was Friday

She will be so very much missed by all of us at the Thread-Killers thread.

We won't forget you, montessori

Oh my gosh, this is just terrible. I am so sorry to hear this. I definately remember montessori. She had a quick wit and never missed a beat, that is for sure. My prayers are with her family.

I keep clicking on this thread hoping it isn't really here. My gosh, she was not even 50 years old. The loss of a cyber friend is so difficult, it just renders us left behind so helpless.....
