This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Mary Anne Hess, 82, born on July 19, 1930 and passed away on August 21, 2012. We will remember her forever.
Mary Anne Heitsman Hess was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was a mother & grandmother to many, not just to her own children, but to nieces, nephews and their children.She loved spending time with her large family and her friends. She had a passion for collecting many things, especially dolls.
Mary Anne & Dale loved to travel, they traveled to 49 states throughout their 57+ years of marriage. She was a member of St. Rita of Cascia Church where her faith was very important to her. She always had an open “ear” for those who needed to talk; she had an "eye" for shopping and always dressed to "impress".
Mom was “class” and though she is gone from this earth, she will be with us all, in our hearts and minds.

Hey grandma, Really missing you today. 6 years is too long without you! I hope you’re watching me teach first grade this year. I’m absolutely loving it! I know that you are always with us, especially as we go though this hard time with dad. I love you! Your favorite grandchild.

Happy 88th Mom.. Life has not been the same since you left us. I can't wait to see you again. Thanks for watching over us, we are trying to keep dad rolling, I know you cant wait to see him again.

I can't believe that 5 years have passed. I miss your voice and talking with you. You must love looking down at your grandchildren as they are becoming such amazing young adults. They miss you and feel your loss as much as we do. Please send many blessings and protection on them as they make important life choices. Love, Susan and the rest of the Mo's... even little Bella misses you! xo

Happy Birthday Mom... Not a day passes that I don't think of you. My heart hurts that you are not here to see the grand kids grow. Every time Melanie has two pairs of glasses on it reminds me of you. Thanks for being you and letting us grow in our own ways. Keep watching over us; especially the kids. Our Loving Guardian Angel....

Happy 86th Birthday to the greatest mother that a son could ever have! She taught me so much about life, how to live, how to accomplish your goals in life! She said life will not be easy, sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in, even if it is not the most popular among others! Stick to your values and never let anyone change you! Love you mom, think of you everyday! You were and still are the best, you are with me everyday! You are now in heaven but I feel you are with me every day! Thank you God for giving me the best mother a son could have!
