    Rich, Troy, Tammy and families.

    I am so saddened by your loss. I have many great memories from my childhood days of Mary Ann.
    She taught me lots about fishing, she always had some real good Schwann’s ice cream in the
    freezer. I was lucky enough to catch her and Rich a couple years back and we had a great visit of all
    the good memories from when our folks were together. May peace be with Mary Ann and May you all
    find the strength you need to continue on your paths.

    Mary Ann Petrik was a woman to be reckoned with in her own regard. She operated her own
    successful real estate agency, provided for her family, and was able to do so with love and wisdom
    for those around here. I wish I had been able to spend more time with her and see her one last
    time before her passing. I send my sincere condolences to the rest of the family and the local
    community. I know her departure will be sorely missed, but there is solace in the fact that she is no
    longer suffering. I'll rest a little easier knowing that she's now at peace and watching over me.

    Sending my love,
    -Reece Petrik
