The family of Mary Ann Clites is in deep sorrow and is mourning the loss of their beloved mother.

Through this journey, she continued to be the source of strength and the rock of our family. Praise and glory to God for blessing us with Mary Ann as our mother.
Although deeply saddened, we are joyful that she is with the Lord and our sister Lois. May she have eternal happiness and rest in peace. We will always be grateful and appreciative of her devotion of love, sacrifice, and dedication to us. Mom, you will forever be in our hearts and continue to be an inspiration until we meet again.
