We did not know Mary well. But if the children she raised is any indication, she must have been an amazing person! Her spirit will live on in love she showered on her family. God bless and give you peace in the knowledge she is with her beloved.

My sincere condolences to the Pinkelman family. Your mom and my mom were so close, we have so many pictures from family parties and all the trips our parents went on together. Our moms were always so close. Hope they are all playing cards together once again in heaven. I have such fond memories of Aunt Mary Ann "my godmother". She was so thoughtful and attentive, I always felt she held a special place in her heart for me.
Remember all the great parties at your house, you guys had the coolest inground swimming pool. Our parents would be playing cards all us kids were playing games running around like a bunch of wild indians so much fun.
Rest in peace Aunt Mary Ann.
Dale Miller, Ann and family

Our Deepest condolences to the family. Mary Ann had a big influence on me growing up. She was always the best neighbor and leader in the strawberry fields. She was always very calm, I never remember her losing her temper with us and I am sure we gave her plenty reasons to. May her eternal days be as peaceful as I remember her. She will be dearly missed by all that knew her. God Bless you all.
