Mary Keane Celebrates Her 103rd Birthday

Friends and family joined Mary Keane to celebrate her 103rd birthday this past Saturday, May 12, at the home of Scott and Judy Heminger in Ogunquit. Keane lives there with her brother, John, who is 98. The siblings were orphaned when Mary was nine years old.  “There were four brothers and sisters, and they each went to live with a different family,” Judy Heminger said. “Their parents were Irish immigrants, and they worked in the Amoskeag mill yard in Manchester, New Hampshire. “Even at her age, she has her mind and wits about her. She’s quite a lady.” More than seventy-five guests turned out to the Open House to wish Mary Happy Birthday. (courtesy photo)
