Mary Ann Dee Dining Dedicated April 19th

Memorial plaques for Sister Maggie and Mary Ann Dee
A plaque in Mary Ann's honor (right) was hung next to that of Sister Maggie's.

On April 19 in a special dedication ceremony, the recently renovated dining room was named the Mary Ann Dee Dining Room in honor of all the support the Dee family has given to The Dwelling Place since its inception.

Roy and Mary Ann have been involved in countless ways. Mary Ann assisted with many meals and shared her treasured recipes. At Christmas time her Toffy was generously shared with everyone.

Relatives, neighbors and friends came to the dedication to celebrate the legacy that Mary Ann left to her family as well as to The Dwelling Place.
