Mary worked many years as a volunteer coordinator at Children’s Hospital in Denver. She later worked for an oil company as a fleet gas sales manager that gave her the opportunity to live in Michigan, Arkansas, Arizona, and Maine. Mary loved Maine and lived there for many years, even after changing careers and opening a dog kennel business. She was an avid New England Patriots fan and carried her devotion back to Colorado. Mary loved dogs and volunteered for pet rescue projects and a donation center that supported rescued pets awaiting new homes. While in Maine, Mary fostered a special needs girl for a while. Mary also loved Ireland and enjoyed its music at Irish pubs in the states.

  1. CandleImageSo sorry to be seeing this just now after over a year. I was just wondering why I haven’t heard from her. She was a very nice person to me and my dogs here in Maine.
    I’m feel bad I didn’t even know she was sick. She never mentioned it when I talked to her last, she only mentioned she was trying to move back to Maine and she was so excited about that.
    My sincere condolences to her family.
