Mae Smith

Mae grew up during the Great Depression in the suburbs of Philadelphia; ultimately calling Virginia home.  Although she had a great appreciation for the finer things in life, she also took great pride in her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Simple but elegant was her ideal.

Mae was earnest, hard-working and determined in everything she undertook. She began her work-life at age 15 and did not retire until age 80. She was proud of earning her way through Drexel University to become a Home Economics teacher, and later earning a master’s degree in counseling.  She developed her varied career around and gave priority to raising her three children. She was a life-long learner, a voracious reader, insatiably curious and erudite.

Mae was the first resident of her neighborhood, which was newly built in 2008. She played a large part in its development into a close-knit community, and she loved her home, her good friends, and especially the neighborhood pool where early on she led water exercise.

She was known for her beautiful garden and love of plants, her artistic ability and needlework skills. She loved teaching others to knit and crochet and sharing her extensive stock of materials.

Mae’s presence will be truly missed by her family and friends, and by so many others whose lives she touched along the way.
