NOTABLE NEIGHBORS
By Julie Gabell

 
     MARY ANN DUVAL
           Wagon Wheel
   Some people just never seem to call it quits. Maryann Duval is one of them. Her positive take on life and boundless energy is evident the minute she walks into the room.
   After graduation from High school, Mary Ann landed a job as stenographer/secretary for the Department of Farms and Markets in the state of Connecticut. Though she did not realize it at the time, this opportunity was to launch her into several prestigious political positions later in life.
   In 1952 Mary Ann married her high school sweetheart, Robert, who at the time was serving in the U.S. Army. She resigned her position with the state to join her husband at Camp Chaffee, Arkansas. Later, she accompanied him to Baltimore where he was re-assigned to counter intelligence.
   After Robert’s discharge from the military, the Duval’s returned to their twenty-acre farm in Connecticut where for the next 22 years they settled into a routine as strawberry growers while they raised their two boys and two girls.
   After her children were in school, MaryAnn returned to work as Executive Secretary to the Mayor of Cromwell. Eight years later she found herself in Hartford as administrative assistant to the Deputy Majority Leader and Speaker of the House of Representatives where she served three terms on the General Assembly. This, however, was still not the end of her political experience. In 1977, after completing these two prestigious jobs, she was elected for a two-year term  as tax collector  for the town of Cromwell.
   Two years later Maryann and Robert moved to Florida. Once settled, they joined the Hope Lutheran church in Hudson where, true to form, Mary Ann was soon washing and ironing altar linens, working to beautify the church grounds, and serving as a Messenger of Hope several times a week. The move also afforded a chance for Mary Ann to pursue other favorite pastimes. She crafted fine shell art, enjoyed Thursday night “country jams,” played Bridge, and bowled once a week. As an active member of the Beacon Woods Garden Club, she threw herself heart and soul into her love of flowers.
   By 1985 Mary Ann was ready to fill another challenging slot to channel her endless energies. She began working for the Beacon Woods Civic Center as a full-time Receptionist and Assistant Bookkeeper. In this capacity, and as chair of the election committee, she remained at the heart of the community for the next fifteen years. 
   Throughout the years Mary Ann has had many successful interests and avocations. She is most proud, however, of her nine active grandchildren and treasures the “family nights” she has been able to provide for them. Today Mary Ann continues to be an energetic and enthusiastic member of Beacon Woods.  She looks back on a life of accomplishment, faces the present with gratitude for her many gifts of family and friends, and looks to the future with an abundance of faith and hope.

Can Tab Program
Please bring your can tabs to the Civic Center.  We are collecting the tabs to benefit Shriners Hospital for Children.  Although they may be small, the can tabs quickly add up and eventually bring a substantial amount of money each year to support the Shriner's mission to provide expert medical care to children at no cost.  Monies are also used to purchase items for the patients such as arts and crafts.
