ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in the memory of my beloved sister, Maryann Wyka, who was born on October 10, 1957 and passed away on October 9, 2010. Our lives will never be the same without her. We will remember her and miss her every day, forever and ever and ever.

Happy 60th birthday tomorrow Maryann! I can hardly believe you've been gone from us for 7 years. We all miss you so much. I love you!

My dear Maryann - I can't tell you how often I think about what it would be like if you were still here with us. It makes me so sad that you're not here to see Mark and Ashley get married, to see Adam and Chaya grow up, and to share everything else that life entails. Not fair. I miss you so, so much.

Happy 59th birthday, Maryann! Sure hope you're celebrating your final year in your 50's! Do you know how much you're missed? Life would be so different (so much better!) if you were still with us .... how I wish that were true. I love you and miss you.

Happy belated Birthday Maryann:
I know your infectious smile is lighting up heaven. I know it is making me smile thinking of it. I remember how you used to laugh at me because I was so shy and you were anything but. The shyness is pretty much gone but I am sure you could still make me blush. You are very much missed.

Happy Birthday Aunt MarMar! You should be celebrating turning 58 tomorrow. We miss you so much ... Think about you all the time. We still call the guest bedroom in our house "Aunt MarMar's room" ... hopefully you know all of this because you can watch us from heaven. I would give anything for you to be here with us. Life would be so different if you were.
Love you so much, Maryann.

Dearest Maryann:
It's hard to believe it's been 5 years. I miss you sooo much dear sister. I know you are with us all in spirit and that we will be reunited again some day. I love you.

Happy Birthday, Aunt MarMar! Hard to believe that you'd be 56 today. I've been thinking about you a lot lately. Went to a Zumba class -reminded me so much of Jazzercise! Remember that? We used to go to that and laugh our heads off, we had so much fun ! Wish you'd be celebrating Adam & Chaya's birthdays with us too. We all miss you so much. If only you could come back.

Once again, while walking on the beach, picking up a few shells, my best friend Maryann, was right there with me, in my heart and in every step I took. Tears fell, and I asked why?  We still cannot forget that terrible day... I know she is gone from this earth, but she will always be part of my life, missed and loved.

It's so hard not to cry. I miss my sister terribly and wish there was some way to bring her back. I wish she had taken better care of herself so that maybe she would be alive today and enjoying her life. She so richly deserved to be happy and loved ... she never got even close to her fair share of any of that. If you can hear me now, Maryann, please know how much I love you and miss you.

Miss you so much Maryann...I think of you everyday..something always comes up and my first thought is to share it with you. You are so missed by all your friends and family..love you and miss you....

M.A. was the constant.. I'll never forget when she showed up on my doorstep in WPB having eloped with Mark.. When she told me I immediately turned into our dad..lol... then realized that she had chosen me to tell first... wow what an honor.. the magic of facebook has allowed many of her friends to share memories with me.. I miss her healing presence.

Maryann was a great friend and I miss her a lot. I was just thinking about her this week because she would have celebrated her birthday on Monday, Oct. 10th. I am sure she is smiling down on us and had one of her best b-days ever!
Posted by Cathleen Peipher on October 9, 2011
Oh God, has it really been a year? The memories of that day have come flooding back like a tidal wave. I look at her picture every day and still can't believe she's gone, that she isn't going to call or send an email. I love you, Maryann. I miss you so much.

Best Friends Forever

Shared by Kathy Thivierge on July 27, 2011

 Maryann and I met when we were 11 years old and upon finding out we both had the same birthdays became forever friends.  We navigated through our Junior/High School years together - kept in touch through our 20 and 30's mostly through phone calls and occasional visits as I was always up and moving!  We even managed to take some family vacations together seemingly always here in North Carolina.  My kids even called her 'Aunt Maryann' because she was always a special person to them.

She was always there for me through good and bad times and was my rock as I went through my cancer treatments.  In the past 10 years we saw alot more of each other as our kids were older we both shared a passion for traveling and took countless trips together almost always to the beaches of North Carolina! We always planned a fun trip in October to celebrate our birthday and more important our long friendship. My favorite trip was to the Florida Keys for our 50th birthday.  We had so much fun!

Maryann was  such a giving and loving person and always was there for anyone and everyone who needed a helping hand.

I  miss her so much but carry all the good memories with me always!

Your missed my friend -  your forever friend- Kathy

Aunt MarMar

Shared by Cathleen Peipher on July 26, 2011

To say that my kids loved Maryann just doesn't even come close to their feelings for her. She was my son, Adam's, Godmother. She was so, so loving, so thoughtful and giving. They loved it so much when Aunt MarMar would come to visit. She would always bring them some little gifts .. often a toy that she still had from when Mark Andrew was a little kid. We still call the guest room in our house "Aunt MarMar's Room".

Mark Andrew, aka "Bubba"

Shared by Cathleen Peipher on July 26, 2011

Never was there a mother who loved her son more than Maryann loved Mark Andrew. When he was born, he was a BIG baby. He had a few complications at birth that meant he needed to be in the NICU for a bit. Compared to the other babies in the NICU, he was a giant .... so we called him Bubba. I don't know when or why we stopped calling him that.

He was the center of her life.
