Mary Ann Buchanan, age 53, passed away Friday August 6, 2021. Mary Ann was an exceptionally great person with a powerful will to help those who needed help, even in times of hardship for herself. She was the center of the entire family, who organized each holiday and family get-together, and would find any reason for celebration just to have us come together. She was entirely dedicated to her grandson, who she loved dearly and who he was also dearly attached to. She was a simple person who got up each day to spend time outside, care for her 6 cats, work around the house, and was genuinely happy with life as it was; just being around the things she cared for. She was preceded in death by her father, Charles Ford; brothers, Lee and Lynn Ford. She is survived by her husband Randy Buchanan; sons Andrew (Rachel M.) Buchanan and Jacob (Rachel S.) Buchanan; grandson Aiden Buchanan; mother Rowena Ford; sister and best friend Becky (Dan) Neubert; as well as several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews, and her six beloved cats.
