Friends remember Mary for her countless acts of kindness, and her warm compassionate intelligence and humor. She always took a selfless interest in others. Mary was grateful for the extra years she received from her lung transplant. Even in her final days, she maintained her youthful spirit and gratitude for life, and her warm beautiful smile comforted everyone around her. She leaves behind her husband of 53 years, Jack. , Her daughters, Katherine and Ellen, and two grandchildren,Katy and Julia, of Oregon, her brother, Thomas Davis, of Kenduskeag and sisters Ann Chadbourne, Ellen Birlem and Katherine Wiesendanger.
