Mary Anne Bisbee (Shoebrook) passed away at her home on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She is survived by her husband of 25 years Bill; her daughters, Amy Morales (Joe) and Grace Bisbee; granddaughter Susanna; and brother, John Shoebrook (Rosalina). She is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Peggy Shoebrook and older sister, Connie Gulley.
Mary Anne was born in Kansas City on June 4th, 1955 and grew up in the Brookside area, attending St. Peter’s Grade School, Hogan High School, Northwest Missouri State and graduated Summa Cum Laude, in Mathematics, from Rockhurst University in 1977. She was immediately hired by Hallmark Cards IT department, became a project manager, where she worked for 33 years until she became medically disabled.
Mary Anne was vivacious and warm with a wide group of friends. She was a great mom and was devoted to her parents and siblings. She loved to play sports and was an adamant Royals, Chiefs and Jayhawks fan, never missing a Royals opening day until this year. Once a year, she and her Hallmark “girlfriends” excitedly ventured to an out-of-town Chiefs game. She will be greatly missed by so many.
