    I wish they had posted something/anything about Mary Anne, for those of us who are not familiar with her and reasons for her winning Westsider of the Year; I clicked on both links you posted for their website and don’t see anything; could someone please post at least a brief synopsis? I love hearing about our wonderful community members

    No one is more deserving of this honor than Mary Anne. She is the Mother Theresa of West Seattle.

    In case anyone is wondering about Mary Anne deVry and what she does, she has only been working tirelessly and mostly anonymously in this community for decades! She is one of the founders of the Westside Interfaith Network (WIN) and she is it’s heart and soul right now. She has helped make this network efficient and effective by welcoming any and all groups who want to help. Christmas gift bags for homeless, housing for immigrants, rent help for families struggling for any reason, meals/groceries for anyone who can use one, advocating with our politicians, you name it, she’s involved in it.  Congratulations Mary Anne on receiving some well-deserved recognition for yourself and for your beloved WIN friends and neighbors!

    MaryAnne, you are a treasure!!!!  You are Jesus’ hands on earth, His mouth as you witness of His love, His feet as you go anywhere and everywhere to serve.  God bless you with many more years of labor in His vineyard.  Love in the Lord, Irene Gehring
