Mary Ann married Jerome Snapp (now deceased) in June of 1952 and together they had four children. In 1988, she married Gene Hardin and they became a blended family. Mary Ann was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Her life of service to her family and church was a testimony for her love of family and to Jesus her Lord and Savior.

Her love for her children had her involved in Brownies, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and PTO’s. She loved doing for others and her family. Sewing and cooking were her favorite pastimes. You were lucky if you were given one of her coffee cakes at Christmas.

    What a delight Mary Ann was! Her good humor resonated. She was, indeed, faithful to her family, church, and friends.

Praise Him, she’s healed today!
