Mary Ann Kretschmer was a devoted wife and mother of six children.
She was also a public health nurse who helped many poor and underprivileged people, especially pregnant women and babies.
Her faith in God was her strength which led her to found Mother of God Retreat House in Alva, FL thirty years ago which still
exists today. She died in 1992 of breast cancer at the age of 52, one year after diagnosis.
In her memory, a family member has made a substantial donation which will be used for Pay their Way, our
copay assistance program. Additionally we will use a portion of the funds to expand Pay their Way in Tennessee.
Our gratitude and heartfelt
thanks go out to the family for their generosity!
