Mary Avery O'Dowd

May 25, 1937 — January 2, 2015

OBIT: Mary Elizabeth Avery O'Dowd passed away on Friday, January 2nd, 2015 in the company of her family. Mary was born in Wolfeboro in 1937 and graduated from Brewster Academy where she met her devoted husband Tom. Mary's cooking was an art form and she enjoyed hosting family gatherings. She shared her kindness on an individual basis person to person. The town she lived in for three quarters of a century returned her kindness during her illness. Mary was defined by style and grace expressed in her every endeavor. She rode horses, skied, played tennis, biked and canoed with great enthusiasm. Mary enjoyed gardening, photography and had a great love of animals. Mary was preceded in death by her parents Howard And Elvira Avery and sister Katherine Thompson. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Tom O'Dowd, her 4 children, Karen O'Dowd, Laura O'Dowd Lovering, Beth O'Dowd, Tod O'Dowd, 7 grandchildren and her sister Jane Avery.
