We will be holding a memorial service for Mame Willey at the United Church of Strafford on the common in the upper village at 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 12th.
Many of us knew Mame as a warm and witty and engaging neighbor and the mother of Katie Shaw and Peter Willey, and many others knew her as a wise, insightful and generous teacher, and still others of us knew her as a gifted poet and novelist. The service will feature the reading of several of her poems as well as a time for sharing our memories and appreciations of her.
We will have hand held microphones as well as one on the pulpit so the time for sharing will be more accessible to the hearing impaired.
