    MaryAnn and I where childhood friends and I have many memories of our childhood years. We lived south of the Vunk farm on North Street. MaryAnn, Jack, Bob and I would ride our bikes up and down the road, sometimes being chased by geese, playing ball in our lot, eating watermelon, riding the hay wagons in the summer and ice skating on your pond in the winter.
    I recently found a picture of MaryAnn and I standing in front of my house in our band uniforms, probably in 1960. A brief walk down memory lane.
    Blessings to you, Marilyn Whiting Andrew and Bob Whiting, Hailey,Idaho

  4. Vunk Family, We wish to express our condolences and deepest sympathy on your loss of Mary Ann. We are very sorry that we were unable to attend the services on Saturday due a longstanding family commitment. Upon learning of Mary Ann’s death we notified Amy in Florida and she immediately remembered the wonderful days during the summer she spent with Frank,Irene and Mary Ann at camp. I know how special a person she was to her Uncle Frank and to all who knew her.

She knew everything We also rode the bus to and from work and covered a lot of the world’s issues. She was fun, loved her laugh and smile. She loved her family dearly. May you always remember the good times and fond memories. God’s comfort and blessings to you all.
