Mary "Mimi" Kuether Eldredge of Orleans, Massachusetts passed away quietly on March 21st, 2020 in the good care of The Terraces Nursing Home where she had recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Born Mary Milsom Mory on March 18th, 1920 in Appleton Wisconsin, she graduated from Vassar College in 1941 and served as a WAVE in WWII before settling in Neenah Wisconsin where she married Martin (Marty) Kuether and raised 3 children. She moved to East Orleans in 1977 where she married Stanley Eldredge, then across to the Bay side in 1986 where she lived happily surrounded by a series of cats, dogs and close friends. She was a member of the Orleans United Methodist church, a familiar face at Snow Library, took her Scrabble games seriously, played the piano, managed email quite well and was actively involved in politics and environmental issues throughout her life. She loved big storms, a well-built fire in the fireplace and always knew when high tide was. As a life-long gardener she was looking forward to springtime and had plans to return home where her many bird feeders were always kept full. Mimi was predeceased by her parents Karl and Milsom (Gaga) Mory and her sister Barbara (Bobby). She is survived by her children Karl Kuether of Gardner NC, John Andrew (Andy) Kuether of Northampton MA, Jenny Beckman (Kuether) of Eagle CO, four grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and her nieces Barbara Mory Wrase (Gilbert) of Neenah WI and Susie Cochran (Gilbert) of Oracle AZ. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic a private memorial in Orleans will be held at the convenience of family and friends; interment will be at Oak Hill Cemetery in Neenah Wisconsin next to her parents.

I was so sad to hear about Mimi's passing. I cleaned her house for almost 20 years, but she was more than a customer to me. I looked forward to seeing her every month and chatting about our mutual love of animals, the news, her family, and even politics. She always welcomed me with a smile, and she was always positive, friendly, and appreciative. She always amazed me that, despite her limitations with hearing and seeing, she found ways to cope and live independently for as long as she did. And her as a tack! I sent her a card back in February, and she sent me a handwritten 2-page letter soon afterwards. I was not expecting it and was so happy to hear from her! I only wish I could have visited her one last time before she passed, but I hope she knew how much she meant to me.
