WEST BERKSHIRE - Mary Elizabeth Ewins died on September 11, 2019 at the Franklin County Rehab Center in St. Albans.
She was born March 15, 1936 in Enosburg Falls, the second child of C. Donald and Virginia (Thomas) Ewins.

Mary loved classical music; good movies; non-fiction books; antiques; her cat, Sassy; her flower gardens, her little brick house by the river and last, but not least, a good Margarita!
