Dear Dave and family,
So very sorry to hear of Mary Ann's passing. I know that her family was the light of her life. I was privileged to be her "teaching neighbor" for several years and will cherish that memory. I'm out of town on Saturday but wanted to let you know that you all are in our thoughts. Peace be with you.

Mrs. Dickson was truly a lovely person to be around. She was a very caring teacher and treated each as we were special. Please accept my condolences.

Mrs. Dickson was one of my favorite teachers, I had for 3rd grade. She helped me greatly when I broke my arm, very understanding, cause I know she couldn't read my chicken scratching with my left hand. Your Dad brought us ice cream bars from your store more than once.
Such great memories! RIP our prayers are with your family in these difficult times.

We loved Aunt Mary Ann. Her laugh brought such joy. We will miss her.

Mary Ann was a wonderful friend to my wife Sharon. When we visited Ohio from Maine, we always made a point to visit and have lunch with her. They were always so excited to see each other and share stories form earlier Amanda days and Gatlinburg vacations. I will miss her smile and quick wit as well as our conversations. R.I.P Mary Ann. Your love Bob has been waiting for you.

You have our deepest, most heartfelt sympathy in your time of loss of your mother. Your parents were great people and great friends of my family. When the Furniture store opened up
I was young and I signed up for the stuff toy they were giving away. It was a stuffed monkey. He had black bottom and a yellow top with black suspenders They put my name back in for the grand drawing and my name was drawn out for the recliner chair. We had it for many years. Your family were great people. Im also remember Mary Ann from school
