In Memory: Mary LaPointe

I write to share the sad news that retiree Mary LaPointe died on January 2 at the age of 90.

She worked at St. Lawrence as a secretary in Admissions from 1965 through her retirement in 1988. I consulted her colleague Wendy Stowe who told me “Mary had the sweetest temperament. She was very upbeat and very kind to everyone.”  Wendy especially recalled Mary’s devotion to her family. Her husband, Wallace LaPointe, also a St. Lawrence retiree, predeceased her. Arrangements are incomplete and coordinated by Buck Funeral Home of Norwood.
