MaryAnn Ahrens, 86, peacefully went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. MaryAnn was born at the Plymouth Bakery, which her grandparents owned, on August 6, 1932. MaryAnn was united in marriage on December 16, 1950 to Donald Ahrens, Sr. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. She was a wonderful homemaker and business woman.
