Mary Ann was a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was an entrepreneur. She grew up in Avon where she was a high school cheerleader. She married Donald Paul Hamblen and together they built two motels and other real estate ventures. They built a lovely home in Plainfield where their family was raised.
She found love again and married Smiley Howard Seneff. Working together they built and ran three restaurants and a car wash. Mary Ann was the light and the center of the family. The traditions we had at holidays will never be forgotten. Memories of growing up and the time spent as adults with her are precious ones. You only get one mom and ours is now in heaven watching over us. Her light will remain in our hearts and memories of her forever. Mary Ann loved her family and we loved her.
