Aunt Maryann was a vibrant and fun woman. I have great memories of family parties on the Copeland house on Glenn. Aunt Maryann had a shared interest in history and politics, and I always enjoyed our conversations. She and Uncle Bob were part of my parents' circle of friends, and they all knew how to laugh and enjoy life. Love to my cousins.
