MaryAnn Louise Kingston

Mount Shasta - MaryAnn Louise Kingston, born February 25, 1932 in San Gabriel, CA, passed away on November 9, 2021 in Mount Shasta, CA.

She was an only child whom wanted to be married and have twelve children. MaryAnn went on to marry Richard Samuel Kingston at the age of 18 after two weeks of dating. Together they settled on eight children. MaryAnn was widowed in 1986 after 36 years together.

She was involved at St. Anthony's Catholic Church where she played the piano and organ, which she loved to do. She also led the Senior Venture Group for over twenty years. In addition to playing music she was an avid gardener, walker, hiker, bird watcher and painter. She also loved to go on family vacations and would often visit Napili Bay, Hawaii to sit in the sun, another of her favorite activities. When she was not vacationing or being an active member of her community she enjoyed completing cross-words, eating butter and going to antique stores.

MaryAnn would visit her 8 children, 21 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren every year. She was always generous with her time and money and was also a very spontaneous person, ready for every adventure. Known to many for her walking and chocolate chip cookies, she leaves behind a plethora of people who love her.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Hospice, St. Jude's or your favorite charity.

There will be a Catholic Mass on December 6, 2021 at noon and a Celebration of Life in Spring of 2022.
