Mary Ann Despres


Mary Ann Despres

It is with profound sadness that the family of Mary Ann Despres announce her peaceful passing at The Moncton Hospital on Thursday, January 9, 2020. 

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband and best friend of 36 years, Alvin, her daughters Sherri Spence-Leblanc (Jean-Guy), Sue-Ann Bourque, Kerri Despres, son Shawn Bourque, step-daughter Shelly Despres-Sullivan (Ken); sister Mary Evelyn Nolan (Leslie); brother Tony Clain (Mary), eleven grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Mary Ann was predeceased by brothers Mike and Joey and sister Linda.

Mary Ann will be especially remembered for her love of animals, nature, gardening, photography and writing.  Mary Ann lived her life by the golden rule: "Do what’s right and do what’s good.  Be kind and help others.  The world can always use one more kind person; and if you can take it one step further, please do."

She was the daughter of Marie Vina Guitar and J.R. Guitar.  She was formerly employed with TS Residences, where she worked with the disabled.

The family will be receiving friends and relatives at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Road, Riverview (869-2007) on Tuesday, January 14th from 6-8 pm.  A service celebrating Mary Ann’s life will take place on Wednesday January 15th 2020 at 11:00 am at the funeral home.   Donations made to the Carma Cat Rescue Moncton Chapter would be appreciated by her family.  Online condolences may be expressed at
