Obituary of Mary Ann Heffernan
Mary Ann Heffernan, 62, passed away on April 2, 2022 at her home. Born in Auburn, NY March 2, 1960 she was predeceased by her loving parents Thomas and Kathleen Heffernan. Mary Ann attended BOCES and Cayuga Centers for Day Hab Community Programs and lived in Moziac's Community Assisted Living with her longtime friends, house mates and cherished staff that was her home. Mary Ann will always be remembered for her smile, attitude, eagerness to make friends with everyone, love of eating out, always searching for Mr Softee; and yet her possessiveness of her newspapers, magazines, yearbooks and music. Mary Ann will be forever missed by siblings: Michael (Rose) Heffernan, of Auburn NY, Patty (Dave) Shrimpton of Riverview, FL and David Heffernan of Auburn, NY; nieces: Meghan and Caitlin Heffernan of Syracuse, NY, Shannon Heffernan of Auburn, NY; and nephews: David IV (Alli) Shrimpton of Riverview, FL and Thomas Shrimpton of Washington, DC. Always in her heart were her eight great-nephews and nieces.
