A Walk In The Forest




2006 at Winterthur 2010 Naples Botanical Garden
2011 Half Dome in Yosemite 2015 in Naples Florida

Yes, Mary likes to "Walk In The Forest" to look at wildflowers and also to go "shrooming"  with Eva Breckenridge. 

And she likes to swim every day in the summer with the "Turtles"  across Beebe Pond in Hubbardton, Vermont.  The Turtle Club was organized in 1986.

She is the Head Snapper out of the original five that included Florence Mason, Jody Zeoli, Bev Grald, and Barb Cooley. Barbara Dellamonte and Anne Holland are now regulars. To become a member, one must participate in the 7:30 am swim three times. New members are awarded a small turtle pin.   Read a terrific story and view pictures by the eminent  artist and writer Florence Mason:  "The Turtle Tale".

                     Joanne Zeoli,   Anne Holland,   Barbara Dellamonte,      Barb Cooley      Florence Mason,         Beverly Grald,                  Mary Sondergeld

Yes, she is a voracious reader, she loves her IPad, and likes to listen to book tapes.

But what Mary likes best, is being a mother to our five children and especially a NANA to our nine grandchildren.

Our children:  July 11, 2015 at John & Connie Towne's home on Muscongus Bay in Bremen, ME.
