Senior Living Resident Spotlight – Mary McBride
Our neighbor, Mrs. Mary McBride was born and raised in Holderness, New Hampshire where she grew up with her parents, 2 brothers and 3 sisters. Her father worked in the logging business and the family moved often to follow his work.
After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor’s degree in biology Mary left the New England region and headed towards the mid-Atlantic taking a job in Maryland as a Personnel Officer for the Social Security Administration.
While working for the Social Security Administration of Baltimore, Mary met and fell in love with her husband, Don Sr who served as the Bureau Director for the Field Organization until his retirement. The couple raised two boys together, Kuno and Donald Jr. during a loving 37-year marriage before Don Sr.’s passing. Prior to delving into retired life here at Dogwood Village Senior Living, Mary could be found busying her time gardening, advocating for environmental protection and loving on her beloved dog “LD’ Little Dog.
Mary expressed her greatest accomplishment in life is that she is proud of the service she has dedicated to bettering the lives of others and the environment.
