She lived independently to the age of 93 supported by her devoted caregivers Amanda Scott and Sue Kupihea before transitioning to hospice care at The Pines in Placerville. Her caregivers meant the world to Mary during her final years meeting her daily needs, listening to her stories, and providing daily love and support.
Unfortunately, during the past year, Sue lost her housing so Mary invited her to live in her home in Placerville. Sue is a mother and grandmother and like many working people today has faced setbacks and must work multiple jobs just to make ends meet. Sue planted "Mary's Garden" as a gesture of appreciation.
"Caring for Her Caregiver"
Mary's wish for her legacy gift, Caring for Her Caregiver, is to create a memorial fund to help Sue to secure permanent housing, provide care for others in need, and tend "Mary's Garden" for many years to come.
Mary asks all family, friends, and the entire community to come together, make a contribution, and help support Sue with a donation to this fund in lieu of flowers to help support Mary's legacy.
