Mary Ann Sullivan, a fantastic teacher, photographer, chef and sister died this morning. I was fortunate to see her a few weeks ago when she was still lucid. I could only leave her home believing I’d see her again but that was not to be.
In her long career she inspired a vast number of college students. She has inspired others with the work she did creating a massive website of architectural photographs, please take a look. She loved traveling and food and art and architecture and was fortunate to live a life she loved. She enriched her community with her efforts to promote art and civic improvement. She was fortunate to enjoy her 50th wedding anniversary with her only husband. She changed my life in more ways than I can count.
She lived one day longer than my 72nd birthday – what an awful birthday present. But at least I’ll have so many memories which can never disappear.
I don’t remember this but she’ll always be my big sister. I miss you Mary Ann.
