Mary Pepin Resident of the Month

Mary Pepin

This month, we’d like to shine a spotlight on our very own Mary Pepin! Mary’s journey is a testament to resilience, family love, and a zest for life.

Born in Colchester, Vermont, Mary grew up in a close-knit family in the small town of Winooski. Responsibility came early for Mary, as she left school at 15 to help care for her younger siblings. Despite this, Mary’s determination shone through. She landed a typing job at a children’s home, showcasing her resourcefulness and work ethic.

Life offered both joy and challenge for Mary. She met her husband Gerry through a mutual friend, and they were married in 1955. Together, they raised a son and enjoyed adventures like camping trips and square dancing. Mary’s career path was impressive, working at the children’s center for 26 years before transitioning to IBM for another 17 years.

In 1980, Mary and Gerry made the exciting move to Texas, seeking a warmer climate. Here, Mary continued to work, spending time with her grandson Andrew, who became a cherished part of their lives.

Mary’s story is one of unwavering love for family. She speaks fondly of her husband Gerry, who passed away last year. Their 68 years of marriage were filled with love, support, and shared experiences. From remodeling houses in Vermont to enjoying a fleet of over 60 cars together, Gerry’s love for Mary is evident.

Today, Mary embraces life at our community. Her positive spirit and willingness to share her remarkable story are an inspiration to all of us.

We are so grateful to have Mary as part of our community!
