In 1986 they retired and moved to Manville, Wyo.

Mary Ann was a member of the B.P.O. DOES and was the musician for five plus years. She loved to play the piano and loved to dance, anything that had to do with good ole country music you could count her in. Mary Ann also enjoyed and trip or two to Deadwood to try her luck.

She loved that as much as playing pitch or rolling a good dice game. But as much as she loved and enjoyed these things it was nothing compared to the love she had for her grandchildren. Beau, Rowdy, Shayla and Jayme they always brought a spark to her eyes. Including the sparks she had when she found out she was a first time great grandmother, Feona Marie Sides was born Aug. 20 2011 in Cartersville Georgia.
