Mary Sprague

Mary M. Sprague, 86, a lifelong resident of Limerick Road in Arundel, passed away Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016 after a brief illness.

Mary was born Oct. 11, 1929 on her family property in Arundel, from which she only moved away for a very brief time to live with her daughter in Virginia for the past 11 months.

A graduate of Kennebunk High School, she worked in attorney offices as a legal secretary, including the law office of Louis Spill, before stopping to raise her family.

As her family grew, Mary began working in food service with Kennebunk schools, eventually becoming head of the lunch program at the Park Street School, then at Kennebunk High School cafeteria, before her retirement after 37 years.

A homebody, she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her granddaughter and great grandchildren, and baking.

She is predeceased by her husband Robert Sprague Sr. in 2000.

Survivors include her children, Robert Sprague Jr. of Lyman, and Susan Rosenbaum and her husband Al of Front Royal, Virginia, a brother Andrew Lux Jr. of Kennebunk, a sister Julie Emerson of Arundel, a granddaughter Heather H. Larson of Alexandria, Virginia, and three great grandchildren.

In keeping with Mary’s wishes, there will be no services.
