MaryAnn and Jim raised their family in Middletown, NJ and New Fairfield, CT. She dedicated her life to caring for her family and when the kids where younger she could always be found at a sporting event or two, chauffeuring kids here and there, with a quick stop at NF Food Center picking up something for dinner. She was very active in The  Blue Raiders Swim Team, Aqua Bears Swim Team and the Rebels Booster Club.
She was a member of St. Edward's Church, where she had been a Eucharistic Minister.
MaryAnn and Jim were blessed with an early retirement which allowed them to travel the world, they especially enjoying going on cruises.
