Mary Ann (Pecar) Apple, 63, of Danville, passed away February 27, 2021. She was born July 31, 1957 in Indianapolis, daughter of Robert and Helen (Pflum) Pecar.
Mary Ann grew up on a farm in Danville and attended grade school at St. Malachy in Brownsburg and Avon High School.
Mary Ann lived the better part of her adult life on the banks of Lake Van Bibber in Greencastle, IN. Her love for animals was unlimited. Once, she even stopped interstate traffic on I-465 to rescue an injured animal who had been struck by a vehicle. She immediately took the dog to a veterinarian for medical attention. Later the dog, who she named Freeway, was given to her mother and became a beloved pet to the entire family.
Despite her physical limitations, Mary Ann owned and operated her own business named "The Gourmet Dog Biscuit Company". She successfully ran her business for nearly 30 years and actively participated in most of the surrounding county fall festivals including a booth at the Indianapolis Gift & Hobby Show. People knew her as "The Biscuit Lady".
Mary Ann had a zest for life that would not be denied even when dealing with her health issues.
In addition to her parents, Mary Ann was preceded in death by a very special nephew, Matt Pecar.
Survivors include brothers; Bob (Jan) Pecar, Mike (Phyllis) Pecar, and Joe (Kim) Pecar; nieces, Kim (Pecar) Pederson and Kristi (Pecar) Feasel.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
