Mary Ann’s heart and soul centered around her family and her active involvement in school and civic organizations. As a young girl, she was a member of the Girl Scouts of America and earned the First Class Award, now known as the “Gold” Award. In high school, she cheered on many classmates as the Wildcat mascot and graduated from Greater Latrobe Senior High School with the Class of 1982. Mary Ann continued her education at St. Vincent College, and graduated in 1986 with a degree in computer science. For more than 30 years that followed, she enjoyed a career in the U.S. Treasury Department as a field revenue officer with the Internal Revenue Service.
Outside of the office, Mary Ann was a constant supporter of local charities and organizations.

She was also a member of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church and for several years, had been an usher at the Palace Theater.
