Whether on the Eastern shores of Maryland, Virginia, or Hatteras Island, a fishing rod was never far away. Mary Jane (Mom) was an incredible cook. Her “love language” was food; she loved her family and friends dearly. To be a guest at her table or to receive one of her fantastic desserts was always an amazing gift. Reading was a lifelong passion, and it was not unusual for her to read 2-3 books a week. Mom was also a passionate gardener. She loved her amazing gardens and took much pleasure from the birds and wildlife that enjoyed them.A celebration of life for friends and family will be held on Saturday, November 25, at 1 pm at the family home in Hatteras Village. The final interment ceremony will be held in the spring at the Todd family cemetery in Fort Howard, Maryland.
Mary Jane Todd passed away peacefully at home on the morning of July 27 at the age of 92.
The family would like to thank each and every healthcare professional who assisted her this past year. New friends and wonderful memories were made. Words of thanks can never, ever be enough. We rejoice in knowing that Mom is reunited with the love of her life and her dear daughters.In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation.
