Mary Grant Farquhar died peacefully at her Aptos home on Aug. 27, 2015. Mary was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Somesville. She attended Bates College before going on to complete both a master’s in science and an RN degree at Columbia University. A longtime resident of Aptos, Calif., she worked as a nurse for the County Office of Education for 22 years. She cherished her beautiful garden and enjoyed walking on the nearby beach. She and her husband, Tom Snell of Bar Harbor, loved to take wilderness hikes and tent camped in many areas of the Northwest. Mary was a loving and caring mother, grandmother and friend. Her kindness will be missed and remembered always by her friends and family.

She is survived by her sons David and John Farquhar, her daughter Nina Reese, granddaughter Sierra Farquhar, grandsons Rowan Reese and Colin Reese, husband, Tom Snell, and brother John Grant. A memorial will be held at her Aptos home in late December.
