Nothing was an obstacle for Mae

She raised two children by herself with love and support from her family in Lowville, N.Y. Walking two miles every day and snowshoeing in the winter were her favorite forms of exercise. She gardened, spent as much time as possible with her grandchildren and later her great grandchildren, read books, and generally delighted in living her life. Mae made most of her own clothes and loved to knit. She had a smile and a wave for everyone.

In the past three months, as she rode in her wheelchair down Rope Ferry Road and across Niantic Bay Bridge, she would wave to oncoming cars and want to know if they had returned her wave. After Hospice of Southeastern CT was asked to provide services to her, she went to karaoke and sang. Those who came to know her loved her for her energy and enthusiasm for life. She touched everyone.

Alas, I have not got the link to the full obit in The Day.
