Mary Wilber


1922 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Mary Elizabeth "Betty" Wilber, a longtime resident of Sandisfield, died March 11, 2013, at Fairview Commons in Great Barrington.
Mary was born May 4, 1922, at home, on Atwater Pond, in Sandisfield. She was one of two children born to Samuel R. Wilber, Sr. and Mary Ellen King Wilber. She attended the one room school house in Sandisfield and was a graduate of Lee High School.
Betty worked at Sun-Chief Electrics in Winsted, Conn., and then for the New Boston Nursing Home as their head cook for over 30 years until retiring in 1991.
Betty was a dedicated lifelong member of the former Sandisfield Grange; she was also a member of the Monterey Grange and the Berkshire South Pomona Grange, as well as a member of The New Boston Congregational Church.
Aunt Betty, as she was affectionately known to the locals in New Boston, was well known for her cooking and could always be counted on for fresh cookies and hot tea when you came to visit her.
Betty is survived by her sister -in-law, Jeane Wilber, and her nephews, David and John Wilber. She also leaves several other nieces and nephews as well as grandnieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brother, Samuel R. Wilber, Jr.
