Mary Ann Pippin (nee Platt). Born in New York City, Mary Ann, 73, was raised in Bayville. A graduate of Oyster Bay High School Class of ‘53, Mary Ann attended Tusculum College in Greenville, TN, where she met and married her college sweetheart, Hal Pippin. They raised their family in St. Petersburg, FL, and she spent 26 years with the Pinellas County School System. Her beautiful smile, positive outlook and devotion to the students who crossed her path have left many saddened by her death on Oct, 17, 2009, from lymphoma. Mary Ann is survived by her husband Hal; daughter Sharon Cimarik (Dirk); son Craig; grandsons, Chris and Quinn; sister Dot Frederick of Bayville; brother Lou (Clem) Platt (Betsy) of Big Fork, MT; nieces, Pam Frederick (Charlie Stuard), Jen Santoro (Bill) and their families.
