  1. It is impossible to put into words how much I admired my cousin MaryAnn and how much I will miss her. She was a vibrant. delightful, compassionate individual. She understood people well and her analysis of problems and advice on any situation was invaluable. When she was a teenager, she made me feel special and played countless hours with me on the front lawn of her mother’s house even though I was younger and many would not have made the effort. She traveled to Albuquerque and sat up with me all night while my mother was deathly ill. She provided me a place to sleep in her home, home cooked meals, and treated me like royalty when I traveled to Pueblo to visit my dad during hospital stays. I watched her work one night at the Sheriff’s station and marveled at her ability to successfully handle dangerous situations and stay right in stride. I will always carry a special place in my heart for MaryAnn. My condolences to Robert, Shirley, Shanda, Michelle and all of the family.

  2. I am so glad the last time I was in Pueblo, that I called Mary Ann and had lunch with her. She was a former sister-in-law and a very good person. She never changed. Always the same Mary Ann. My deepest sympathy to Shanda and Michell and especially to Robert.

  3. I really don’t know how to start about Maryann – I have known her well over 30 years working closely with her counsin Shirley Welborn. Maryann always called me “Extension 2” when she called for Shirley in the Extension Office. She was a wonderful person – could be tough at times – but would give you the shirt off her back. She helped my family in too many ways to mention here and she was adored by all of us. She will be greatly missed. Her love of dogs was something we shared and had many conversations about them. No more pain Maryann and may you rest in peace. Love and miss you – Carol and Jennifer

  4. Maryann was a true and valued friend. She will truly be missed by myself and my girls Shonda and Ashley. I am glad that I took a picture of Ashley and Maryann the last time we went to Maryann’s favorite Chinese restaurant. I will cherish that picture for ever. My sincere sympathy to the family.
