Mary Ann and Paul were married 52 years and have made the Madison area their home since 1978.

This business also served various movie and television shows that filmed in Georgia, as well as the Atlanta Ballet and Atlanta Opera, for many years.
Mary Ann was a talented artist who captured beauty on canvas, and she loved to sing. Her kind spirit blessed those who knew her and inspired people to live a better life. She loved Sundays when she could go to church to hear God’s Word and to see her friends. Her love for animals, inherited from her father, guided much of her life.
Mary Ann is survived by her husband. She is also survived by three sons, Paul L. Paschal, Jr. and Tonya of Madison, Dr. Jack W. Paschal and Becky of Athens, Daniel J. Paschal and Angelica of Social Circle, and special friend, Devindra Carino.
