Mary Ann Stuart, 84, Hilton Head, S.C.

Mary Ann Stuart, 84, of Hilton Head, S.C., passed away Aug. 7, 2013. She was born Sept. 25, 1928, in Hammond. Mary Ann was the daughter of Michael and Barbara Matovina.

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her husband, Peter G. Stuart; her second husband, Bill Hornett; and her brother, Michael Matovina.

Pete and Mary Ann founded their family business together in 1973 in Greencastle and later expanded to eight stores in Indianapolis, Nashville and  Hilton Head.
