Mae was a longtime member of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Bridgewater and served on the alter guild for many years.

She faithfully kept in touch with friends and loved ones through her loving, poetic letters and cards displaying her artistic penmanship for as long as she was able. Mae's loving care and dedication was evident in all that she did.
She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Lynne Von Egidy and partner Ronnie Levine of NY, her son Walter Von Egidy and wife, Wendy of Bridgewater and step-son, Dennis Von Egidy and wife Angie of NC as well as many Von Egidy relatives in the Southeast and also her loving caregivers.

Mrs Von Egidy was a kind, gentle and beautiful woman. My father, Ubald Bourdeau, worked for her husband for many, many years and after Mr. Von Egidy passed away, my dad continued to do odd jobs around the house for Mrs. Von Egidy. She will be missed by all. We want to extend our condolences to the entire family.
In Loving Memory, Alice and Tony Licursi
