Sign the Guestbook

MaryAnn Williman was born September 15, 1943, in Maywood, Calif. She was raised in Lakewood, Calif. and at the age of 19 married Tom Benline. They moved to Homegardens, Calif., where they raised three boys, Brian, Keith, and Eric. After 19 years of marriage, Tom and MaryAnn divorced.


She moved to Corona, Calif., where she met and later married Otto Williman. Otto had two children from a previous marriage, Jody and Terry. Together they acquired five children, 14 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.


MaryAnn was a storyteller and it started with her grandchildren. She would sit with them and weave some wonderful stories. She gave the characters in her stories the names of people she knew and the kids would laugh. She finally put the stories to paper and made up books for the grandkids.

She was a shining star. She loved much, she gave much, and will be forever in our hearts.
