It is with sadness we announce the passing of MaryAnne Crossman, age 86, of Middleton, NB. MaryAnne passed away on Monday, March 4, 2024 at the Drew Nursing Home, Sackville, NB.

Born and raised in Dorchester NB, by the late Harry and Annie (Anderson) McCabe. 

MaryAnne was employed with the Royal Bank, Dorchester, NB for years before deciding to resign and stay at home to raise her 5 boys. MaryAnne did return to the workforce later in life and worked in the dietary departments at both the Sackville Memorial Hospital and at the United Church Home for Senior Citizens (Drew Nursing home) then transitioned to office work for Fundy Environmental before retiring in 2010.

MaryAnne was an avid volunteer with the Dorchester Branch of the IODE and attended the Anglican Church in Dorchester.

She was a lady who loved to look her best. She was always well put together with matching jewelry; she loved fine china and a cup of tea with a scotch cake cookie. She always had to be on the move and certainly enjoyed driving her PT Cruiser to grandchildren's sports and activities.

MaryAnne appreciated country music and being surrounded by her family, especially her boys. She enjoyed entertaining and was very generous to all she came in contact with and was known best for making homemade pies and her famous family Christmas dressing.

She will be dearly missed by her family including and her 5 sons Kevin Crossman, Middleton, NB; Karl (Kim) Crossman, Dorchester, NB; Kendall Crossman, Middleton, NB; Kent (Cindy) Crossman, Sackville NB; Kerby (Line) Crossman, Sackville NB and grandchildren John Taylor, Edmonton, Alberta; LeeAnn (Calum) Hardie, Middleton, NB;  Kody Crossman, Middleton NB; Ethan and Anna Crossman; Janelle and Evan Crossman, all of Sackville NB; great granddaughter Freya; 2 great great granddaughters Lily and Lucy; her sister Shirley Buck, Sackville NB;  and special friend Debbie Wiggins Colwell as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd; grandson Tyler Crossman; sisters Gladys Copp, Betty Colwell Margaret Adshade, and Dorothy Nelson.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge St., Sackville NB (506) 364-1300.  A celebration of MaryAnne’s life will be held at a later date.  Cremation has been completed and burial will take place in the Dorchester Cemetery, Dorchester, NB, in the spring. 

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of MaryAnne may do so to the Shepody IODE, or the charity of their choice.
