The two would have six children; Craig, Tom, Larry, Bob, Don, and Judy.
Mary Ann had such a kind and generous soul. She was dedicated to St. Patrick’s Church, and genuinely lived her faith. Mary Ann was truly the type of person to do anything for anyone, without expecting something in return. She took such pride in being a hardworking and loving mom and housewife and was an excellent cook and baker Every night she produced a delicious home-cooked meal garnished with fruits and vegetables she canned in the summer. Mary Ann was also the secretary, biller, and bookkeeper for Mitchell Electric, a business she shared with her husband Al for 25 years. She had a quick wit, fun sense of humor, and loved games of any kind. In her free time, you would expect Mary Ann to be playing a game of cribbage, solitaire, or bingo. She was also a creative knitter and crocheter, keeping her family and friends supplied with mittens, hats, and afghans.
