Mary Alana Maynard January 31, 1958 – December 27, 2018 Mary passed away at 60 years old, 58 years longer than all the doctors said she would live. She loved to prove people wrong and obviously she was very good at it. Mary loved everyone she had ever met. Everyone instantly became her boyfriend or girlfriend. Mary enjoyed playing Yahtzee, 10 Thousand and Trouble. She loved her cards and dice, endless hours of putting together puzzles, listening to music, singing and religiously watching her favorite cartoons. Mary had an amazing memory. She could always remember everyone’s birthdays and made sure we never forgot hers, reminding us to be sure to bring gifts, always excited about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny because they brought her gifts as well. Mary loved playing games with her great nieces and great nephew as long as they didn’t make a mess in her room because anything a mess drove Mary crazy.
