Mary was born in Indiana on February 14, 1932, to James and Lola (Wallace) Eads. She moved to California in her early 20's before moving to Albany in 1967. She was married to Ed Bauer who proceeded her in death in 1995. She married Walt Paquin in 1997. He was the love of her life and they shared a lifetime of love together before he passed away in 2010.
Mary was well known for her canning of all fruits and vegetables and passed along her recipes for zucchini relish and bread and butter pickles. But the most treasured item was her zucchini bread. She always made sure she had some on hand when out of town family came to visit. Mary loved to go to the "bins" and buy baby clothes as well as adult clothing to wash and press so she could donate them to FISH or send to the orphanages in Mexico. She had a compassionate heart and gave to people in need throughout her life. She had a lifelong career in the banking industry and was brilliant when it came to finances.
She is survived by her five children: Lola Bauer, Bill Bauer, Barb Bauer, Kym Beier (Phil), and Christina Adams (Greg) 11 grandchildren Tim, Jason, Bryan, Heather, Christina, Allycia, Nate, Taylor, Reese, and Amy. She was preceded in death by her granddaughter Melissa. She has two beloved sisters Clara MacDougall and Helen Wilder (Don) she has 15 great-grandchildren as well as four nephews John, Jim, Don, and Ed and one very special niece Jenny.
In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation to the St Mary's soup kitchen of Albany, one of Mary’s favorite charities. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Loving you to the moon and back Mom.
