Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.
Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep,
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.
Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.
Fades the light;
And afar
Goeth day,
And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;
Day has gone,
Night is on.
Fades the light;

Goeth day,

Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;

She was also one of the most passionate and loyal fans of the Zags and Mariners. She was a devout Christian, especially close to her church and church family.
It was a pleasure to receive a baked item from Mary Ann as she was fantastic in the kitchen and well known for her delicious pies, cinnamon rolls and cookies.
