MaryAnn Bruce died on February 20, 2023. She left this life peacefully, without pain. MaryAnn/the "Little Mother"/Sis/Mom/Gammie/Miss Bruce, as she was known throughout her life, was an indisputable force of nature; strong willed and independent. She loved her family. She was so very proud of her home state of Wisconsin and brats. She loved her garden and the beach. She was most at home near the water.
MaryAnn was the second oldest of 9 siblings. Her husband Ralph ("Big Bruce") left us back in 1973. She was mother to 4 children - Della-Ann, Thomas Allen, Norman Daniel and Joseph Aldo. She was grandmother to Gayle-Ann, Angela, Melissa and Joe. She had 8 great-grandchildren.
Her legacy will continue for many years to come.
