Mary was a remarkable woman-- passionate about helping those that could not always help themselves; more educated than most people and women of her time; unfailing believer in that she could make a difference in this world; and lover of beautiful things, both simple and complex.
you will be missed Mary Louise Wood Hoff. God bless you. May you rest in peace and watch over those that you have loved.
Just saw the PLPA notice...I didn't get to know Mary's family nor for that matter did I know Mary any too well. I did however have the pleasure of working with her when she decided to purchase her summer home here at Peck Lake. Her impact was immediate as I was quick to discover her well educated sense of humor, crafty negotiating skills and her genuine sense of kindness....indeed she was quite a lady.

Mary was a major part of my childhood. The gatherings at Grandma's, with many outbursts of laughter that seemed to bother "the older generations", the fun at the lake, and the good times we had at her home. In adulthood Mary was always ready to share her home, her wisdom, her kindnesses and, of course, her daffodils!. It has been my joy to have been a cousin of Mary. May her memory live on in the hearts of her children and all that have been touched by her.
I am the second youngest Wood cousin and want to send my condolences to Mary Louise's family. I have many memories of Wood gatherings both in Gloversville and at Canada Lake. I only regret that your mother was unable to make our reunion last summer.
my thoughts are with each of you,
