Obituary for Mary A McRae

Mary Alford McRae, age 78, passed away Friday February 1, 2019 at home surrounded by her family. She was born December 1, 1940 in Wilmington, DE to George N. Alford Sr. and Edna Mae (Lewis) Alford.
Mary was a retired business owner, who specialized in picture framing and artifact preservation. Throughout her entire life, she never lost focus on helping others in need. She loved her friends and acquaintances, which she felt blessed to have in her life. She loved nature, wildlife and bird-watching. She was passionate about environmental preservation. She loved listening to Celtic Thunder, as well as many other musical performers.
Mary is survived by her husband of 57 years Richard McRae of Dover, son Alan McRae of Wilmington, daughter-in-law Lori McRae of Wilmington, daughter Adrienne Owen of Smyrna, grandson Duncan, granddaughter Kelsey, sister Anne (Alford) LaRue of Wilmington, brother George Alford Jr. of New Castle, as well as several nieces and a nephew. Mary is also survived by dear friend Joan Hensel of Newport and her family, whom Mary held close to her heart. Service for Mary will be private, for family only. Mary’s family wishes to extend heartfelt appreciation to all who have expressed concern and condolences. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) or the Nature Conservancy, as Mary donated to both organizations throughout her lifetime.
