Mary Ann was born in Shamokin, PA, and was the daughter of Leona Zeliniskie Janaskie and the late Robert Charles Janaskie. She was a 1963 graduate of Shamokin High School. She relocated to Arlington, VA where she found and married the love of her life Pete on November 21, 1964. They have been happily married for 56 years. In the Fall of 1969, they moved to the Shenandoah Valley and found the home that they would love and raise their three children together. She had a very strong and personal relationship with God. Her faith and passion to read her Bible and study the word of God was very important to her. Her strength and tenacity for things, and people she loved was first and foremost. She was loved by many, and a stranger to no one. MaryAnn loved to cook and bake, plant flowers, read, and most important spend time with her family and friends. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. Her grandchildren Carl, Will, and Charlie were her world, and the love she had for them is everlasting.
