MaryAnn Townsend, 75, of Rothschild, passed away on August 6, 2019 at her home.

MaryAnn was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 21, 1944 to the late James and Beatrice (Cronce) Schider. She worked as an accountant for St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, and then did administrative work for Wesley United Methodist Church.
