Mary Ann Falkenstein of Woodstock went to be with the Lord on the morning of June 11, 2011.
She was born on August 5, 1934 in Wheeling, WV to Mike and Anna (Kish) Evans. Mary Ann graduated from Wellsburg (WV) High School as a member of the National Honor Society.
During her adult life she worked as a kindergarten teacher and retired from Prince William County as the Senior Secretary for the Planning Department. She spent countless hours volunteering with a multitude of organizations that spanned a lifetime throughout Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley. The friendships she made through church,
volunteering, and work provided hundreds of people with cherished memories.
Mary Ann lived life to the fullest and enjoyed trips to NYC for Broadway Shows, Europe, and family vacations. She was an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys and on one occasion met Tony Romo and received an autographed photo from Roger Staubach for her service to PWC. She also embraced life’s simple pleasures like neighborhood walks and yard sale excursions with her husband.
Her biggest joy was spending time with her family and the love and dedication she expressed for them was extraordinary. She will be deeply missed by all who knew
