    I am not a visitor to the community board. However, I know Montessori frequented this board. I just received an e-mail from her husband that she passed away on 7/31......

    I am completely in shock and in sadness. I got to know Mary Ann when I first became a DVC member and she rented points from me. She was my first renter and became a repeat renter and a good friend. She was always funny, full of energy and LOVED Disney World. She was from Boston but she had not been back too often because she could never go past Orlando (she lived in FL south of Orlando), in her words.

    Some of her organs were donated to others, just like how she would have done.

    I am sure there are plenty of you here who had gotten to know Mary Ann over the years and can share our fond memories of her.

    Mary Ann, I will miss you....................................... Rest in Peace.

    Wow, I knew she had many friends here.

    Here is the obituary

    http://www.legacy.com/SunSentinel/LegacySubPage2.asp?Page=LifeStory&PersonId=2481301

    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........
