Mary Ann provided me with love and guidance at a time I so needed it. Working with her was a privilege. She was so empathic and intuitive in her work. She was someone to emulate.

Dear Bartel & Leschke families. Please accept my sympathy. Mary Ann was my first babysitter when I was little growing up in St. Nazianz. Her mother would treat us with fresh eggs. Spent time playing at the Bartel household. Enjoyed seeing her and her family at St. Paul's here in Manitowoc. She was a truly kind and generous person. So soft-spoken.

I knew of both your parents from St. Bernard. Every once a while I get a hug from your Mom at church. She loved see the Children come to the Altar when we gather them for Children Liturgy of the Word she sometimes wave at them. We do miss them. I am so sorry your loss. My Prayers to you that you may find peace in all this loss this year.
