Mary Ann was born on February 17, 1932, in Independence, Missouri to Henry M. and Gladys L. (Cupp) Shields. She graduated from William Chrisman High School in 1950. After high school she worked for a time at the Bell Telephone Company and at Sears Roebuck until she met her future husband. She married Gene Winslow on February 9, 1957. She was a life-long member of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (now known as The Community of Christ). Mary Ann spent many years in service to the church. She also volunteered as a Cub Scout Den Mother and Skylarks/Orioles leader. Mary Ann loved to sing. She was an avid member of both her church choir and the Independence Messiah Choir. When her children were older, she worked as a clerk for the Church at the World Headquarters (The Auditorium) until she retired.

Mary Ann loved people. She was like a mother to many and was a friend to countless others. Wherever she was, she could be recognized by her infectious laughter and radiant smile. She will be deeply missed.
