  • Ann Lietz Benson says:

    Marie Ann was a cousin and although I did not see her recently ( I live in Atlanta, Ga) I remember as a young girl stopping
    at her parents house in Mosinee and enjoying her older girl activities, books, cheerleading, etc. For me it is an end to an era of living relatives. Rest in peace.

    What I remember most about Marie Ann is her broad contagious smile. What I am most grateful for is her introducing my parents, Edwin and Rose Lietz, to each other. Our sympathies to the Banse family.
