Maryanna loved her family, friends and especially her pets. She had a big heart for animals and rescued many strays from the snowy Western New York winters, bringing them into her home. She worked with her brother Mike on the family fruit farm, where she loved the outdoors and being able to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to the local community. She looked forward to summer harvests and interacting with customers young and old as they picked strawberries or just picked up a basket of cherries. An avid baker – she relished sharing fresh pies and cookies with friends.
