An avid reader and writer, she published 3 young adult mystery novels, one of which was nominated for the Arthur Ellis Best Juvenile Crime Award. She also wrote extensively about family history.
Interment at Pakenham Union Cemetery, and a celebration of Mary Ann's life, will take place in spring, 2023.
The family expresses its sincere gratitude to the staff of Lanark Lodge in Perth for their competence and compassion during this difficult period. Donations to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated. Arrangements are in the care of Blair & Son Funeral Directors, Perth.
