Mary Ann Acree



As a teenager, I babsat for Anne, Larry and Michael on Floral Avenue. Mary Ann was such an engaged, good mother and one of the kindest persons I have ever known. Sonny and Mary Ann were loving parents, thoughtful and generous neighbors and often surprised my family with their delicious baked goods. Rosemary G.

Mary Ann was such an example of faith and goodness. Her life was one that many of us wish we could aspire to have…I knew her from the “old days” in Misty Creek. She was first and forever kind and the respect I have always had for her is in the forefront of my mind today. I always have had a spot in my heart for her and her family, and I pray they can find peace in the knowledge that she is with her Father, living in the glory she so deserves. Thanks so much, Mary Ann, for leading the good life and inspiring others to do the same. We will miss that smile…❤️

What a wonderful lady!

I have too many memories to share!!! Mrs Acree taught me how to knit and sew. So kind and happy. I can still hear her laugh. Loved the chickens and the riding ring!!! I have no doubt she is already in heaven and joined with Annie and Sonny. Love you all and thank you for letting me share in your life ❤️❤️❤️ Your Limaburg road neighbor Cindy.

Love and Light in this time of loss.

Katie all my love to you and your family. I’m so sorry for your loss. My fondest memory of your Mom is her taking us to Colonial with her and letting us make smiley face cookies.
