MaryAnn was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 15, 1944. She attended St. John’s school in Little Canada and was in the first graduating class at Archbishop Murray High School in 1962. After high school, MaryAnn attended beauty school, with her first job at her aunt’s beauty salon. Soon after she moved to Mr. Michael’s Beauty Salon, eventually purchasing the business. While working, MaryAnn also spent much of her time raising her children and spending time with her family. Later in life, MaryAnn worked at the Marian Center and Mueller Funeral Home as a hairdresser, where she was loved by many. In her spare time, she enjoyed riding her John Deere Tractor, genealogy, and tending to her beautiful gardens. Her gardens were always a treasure in the summer months, growing flowers and vegetables that were always watched over by the Virgin Mary statue. Throughout her personal and professional life, MaryAnn had a deep faith, always giving to others, touching the lives of those that crossed her path.
