Mary Ann was born December 18, 1933 in Cheyenne, a daughter of the late Roy and Bessie (Gibbs) Palmer.

Mary Ann enjoyed caring for her home and her family.  She served as a grandmother to all of her family, including children in her community and was truly more than a babysitter.  She volunteered with the Shriners Hospitals for Children and enjoying making gifts to lift the spirts of those who were hospitalized.  She was also a member of the Burns Chapter #47, Order of Eastern Star. She loved to make crafts, but her greatest joy was taking care of children and treating them as their own.

Mary Ann is survived by her daughter, Barbara Jean Grunden; daughter-in-law, Barbara Ann Grunden; grandsons, Eric (Nicole) Grunden and Donald (Katy) Grunden; granddaughter, Angela (Chris) Nichols: and great-grandchildren, Jack, Chase, Mycah, Rhett, Knox and Maisie.  She is also survived by extended family members, Tim and Cheri Pollom with Astrid, Aubrie, Kylie and Garrett, Kim and David Black, Rhonda, Mike and Carson DeLeeuw, Courtney and Erik Swendseid with Addi and Roxie, Hannah DeLeeuw, Deb Schultz, Jarvis Schultz and Niki Tottingham, Dana Schultz, and Carter Schultz and Sierra Johnson.
