Obituary for Mary Ann DeVries

Mary Ann DeVries, 80, returned to her heavenly home on Sunday the 6th of January 2019 in Bellingham Washington.

Mary Ann was a kind, soft spoken and loving mother, grandmother and sister who will be greatly missed. Our solace is in knowing that she is now at peace.

Mary Ann was born in Nooksack WA to Fred and Tina Top of Everson on March 7, 1938.

Mary Ann graduated from Nooksack Valley High School and shortly after was wed to Sid DeVries. Together they had three children. She spent her early years lovingly raising a family and once that task was complete she enjoyed several careers. The first was at Western Washington University Book store where she enjoyed the interaction with the students and was employed for many years. Mary Ann then worked for Whatcom County 911 dispatch and served a multitude of other duties in the sheriff's department, eventually retiring from there.

Mary Ann loved traveling with friends and family, golf, photography, and was an avid crafter, well known for her festive holiday cards.

Mary Ann is survived by son Bryan (Cathy) DeVries, son William (Cassandra) DeVries, daughter Lorraine DeVries, brother Jim (Lorraine) Top, grandson Ryan (Kindra) DeVries, along with many nieces and nephews.

There will be a private family graveside service later this week. Memorials may be given to Alzheimer's Society of WA.

The family of Mary Ann DeVries wishes to extend our sincere gratitude to the nurses and staff at Brookdale Senior Living for their loving care and support through the years.
