MaryAnn graduated from Gilbert High School. She was a devout Christian who thoroughly enjoyed studying the word with Joyce Meyer.

She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was loved by many. Her impact will be felt and missed by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by her mother, Lisa Kay Livingston Darby (Duck) of Pelion, SC; her sisters, Mandy Marie Counts (Johnathan Counts) of Blythewood, SC, and Melissa Jean Briggs (Tone) of Pelion, SC; her grandparents, Mary Frances Miers (Joe Miers) of Eastover, SC, and Georgette Koerner of Gaston, SC.
