Mary Ann Holdredge Lawrence, KS

At age 84, Mary Ann Holdredge finally left home without her make up on. She passed away peacefully at her home in Lawrence surrounded by her loved ones. She was born July 23, 1933 to Thomas and Esther Shea in Hutchinson, KS. She married Rod Holdredge in 1954, and was preceded in death by him in 1994. For their five children and many others, Mary was the model of strength through difficulty, the best cook around, and most definitely the life of the party. The family will have a Celebration of Life on Saturday, September 16th and those who wish to attend may contact the family for details. It would take a full page to say enough to honor what an amazing woman Mary was, but since we don’t have a coupon for this obituary, she would want us to keep it short.
