Whitmore McCabe 79, passed away peacefully Monday June 6, 2016 with
her loving family by her side.
She spent many years
working as the Court Clerk for the Village of Ravena, and also as a
volunteer for the Ravena Rescue Squad.
An avid ephemerist, Mary
had a love of local history. A member of several local historical
societies, she often contributed items from her collections for
displays and shows.
Always of sharp mind and
wit, she enjoyed wordplay, especially her weekly get-togethers with
the “scrabble ladies”.
Above all, Mary had a
love for helping those less fortunate, and truly enjoyed charitable
giving to many religious and humanitarian organizations.
Mary is survived by her
son Jim of Waterford CT, son John and Andrea of Stamford CT, and
daughter Maureen and Anne Toupouzis of Boston, MA. She is also
survived by six grandchildren - Meghan, Kathryn and Timothy McCabe

John Whitmore, sister Virginia Freitas, and infant son Tyler.
