She is also survived by her other two “girls,” Lucy and Chloe, her puppies.; and her very special friend, Carlene Hall, who has been by her side for many years.

Maryann was preceded in death by her son, Dennis Andrew (Butchie) Meisinger;  father, John Tiger; mother, Mary Tiger; and brothers, Keith Tiger and Merle Tiger.

    It was saddening to learn of Maryann's death having known her and the family since 1950's. Hung out with Keith, wrestled with their father John in the yard. Good memories. I remember when Maryann gave birth to Butch and was at the house when her and Dennis brought him home.

    RIP, Maryanne, I'll always remember you as a sweet, loving person. You were always so good to me when I was young. You taught me how to play card, dice, and scrabble and beat me on a regular basis. I enjoyed those days, you and the family made me feel so welcome. Thank you for all the fond memories, Lovingly, Dennis "Dino" Colla

    We were so sorry to hear of Maryann's passing away. She was a wonderful person and friend. We are sorry we weren't able to come to the services. We have been under the weather and Thomas is still sick. Don't want to spread the germs to others. So just wanted everyone to know how very sorry we are and send our condolences to all who knew and loved Maryann. She is at peace and I pray everyone can find comfort in that knowledge. Love and Blessings. Bobbie, Thomas,Gloyd and Levi.
