MaryAnn was a graduate of Somerville High School with the class of 1959. She raised her family in Groveland.

Books were also her passion. She read all the classics. Opening her own book store gave her the opportunity to be surrounded by all her treasures and gave her reason to acquire all the literature she loved.

Dunbar and his companion Angela O’Hearn of Newburyport, Carolyn M.
