Anyone who knew Mary Rae knew that she loved to sing, she was in several choirs throughout her life, she loved dancing; you couldn't keep her off the dance floor at any event; Giants football being a loyal season ticket holder for years; Broadway, where she has seen hundreds of shows; when her grandsons were younger, she attended almost all of their games whether it be baseball, soccer, or basketball, their Meima was always there.
In her younger days, Mary Rae played tennis, skied alot in Colorado and Utah, but mostly Vermont; and she really enjoyed the beach. She travelled a lot but not as much as she wanted. Everyone loved Mary Rae, Mare, M.R., Meima, our Mom.
