Mary Ann was born on May 1, 1928 in Nashville, Kansas to Anton and Marie Ann Panek. She grew up and attended school in Kansas. She later met the love of her life, Lawrence J. Ebenkamp and they later wed on September 8, 1947 in St. Leo, Kansas. A few years later they moved to Pampa in 1958 where they resided ever since. They shared many wonderful years before Lawrence preceded her in death after 52 years of marriage. She was longtime member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and she served in their Women’s Council.
She was a generous woman who gave a lot of her time to Pampa Senior Citizens and Good Sam’s that spanned 22 years. The most important thing was her family and Mary Ann was an incredibly supportive mother to her six sons and their families. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; a grandson, Jason Ebenkamp; a daughter-in-law, D’lyn Ebenkamp; three brothers; and her two sisters.
