Mary Ann has served on numerous local community and church organizations, including the Lee’s Summit Historical Society, PEO, and the Lee’s Summit Symphony.

Randy and Mary Ann both enjoy serving their community through various volunteer organizations, enjoying coffee with friends, golfing, traveling, and attending numerous events for their grandchildren.

A small family event was held to celebrate along with virtual tributes from family/friends and a celebratory parade. Their love has endured through many years of happiness, health, illness, milestones, losses and now a pandemic. They are a true example of unwavering devoted love.
