My parents truly enjoyed Mary and Richards visits to Maine. They had such a good sense of humor and a twinkle in their eye for each other. After Richards death, Mary often called to check in on her friends and relatives and to make them laugh. A life truly well lived and someone who will be missed. We are happy Mary that you are now in bliss with Richard. We loved you both. Please tell my parents I miss them.

I’m Karla and Ms. Libby is my husband, Jason’s, maternal grandmother, also known as Mimi. What I remember and love most about Mimi is the way she always made sure that everyone felt comfortable in her home. She welcomed me like her own and she was always surveying the room to make sure everyone was content. Like any good grandma, she loved telling stories!! But like ONLY “Mimi” could do, she loved telling her unique story of how she met her husband who became her best friend. I can only hope to live and tell a unique story to my grandchildren like Mary did!
