Condolences Left For Mary Ann Kaiser Staffire

My sincere sympathy to your family. I went to St. Mary’s and Notre Dame with Mary Ann, and her mom was our Brownie troop leader. She was a sweet, sincere person.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mary Ann. I just recently came across her obituary online. I had no idea that she had passed on in December. We went to St. Mary’s and the Academy of Notre Dame together. We also were only one day apart in age, which we always enjoyed sharing. Mary Ann was such a sweet girl. Please accept my most sincere sympathy to your family. My heart and prayers are with you. God Bless!
