Mary Beth Baxter
Mary Beth (Anderson Baxter,67,died at Cape Cod Hospital after complications recovering from heart surgery on June 15, 2011. Mary Beth was born in Buffalo, New York on November 17, 1943 to Benjamin H. and Martha J. Anderson and grew up in Syracuse, NY, Youngstown, OH, and Pittsburgh, PA. She graduated from Mt.
Lebanon High School in 1962 and in art education in 1966. She married Donald W.Baxter in 1966 and raised her family in Northville, MI. Mary Beth was rarely without art supplies in her hands. She
became an early American folk artist as an extension of her love of early American country life. She collected antique baskets, quilts, early American pottery and colonial furniture. She used these themes in her artwork.
Mary Beths artwork and style became known throughout the country. Mary Beth was an active member in PEO, chapter EA, Questers, No. VI, Suburban Junior Womens Club, Alpha Xi Delta and Hospice volunteer. She loved playing bridge,
gin rummy and dominos with her grandchildren. Mary Beth took great pleasure in life and loved musicals, antiquing, travel, talking to and learning about people, decorating her gift shop, gardening, lobster and living near the sea. One of Mary Beths greatest strengths was her entrepreneurial spirit. While raising her family in Michigan, Mary Beth began her own home-based business, Walnut Hill Crafts where she had a devoted following. Mary Beth sold her artwork by traveling around the country to primitive art shows. Mary Beth bravely took a great risk leaving Michigan and fulfilled her lifelong dream of moving to New England and settling in her paradise, Cape Cod. In 1991, she opened her first gift shop in Brewster called Mary Beths. Everyday she painted at her easel looking out her window at an abandoned early American building. In 1994, an opportunity arose to purchase the building which had a long history with the Mayflower Hopkins family. She realized the new gift shop should be named the Hopkins House. Her daughter, Heather completed her baking degree and started the bakery in a building attached to the gift shop in 1995 followed by her daughter, Amy opening a garden antique shop. Mary Beths artistic eye and decorating sense transformed the Hopkins House Gift Shop, Bakery, and gardens into the Cape Cod destination it is today The greatest loves and joys of her life were her children and grandchildren. Mary Beth was a beautiful, caring, loving and generous human being. She enjoyed life to the fullest
and was always interested in others. Mary Beth shared herself through her inexhaustible empathy, sympathy, a listening ear and her warm enveloping embrace. Mary Beths customers became her friends and they all have warm memories of her sitting in the comer of the bakery folding boxesor painting on her canvases. She greeted everyone with a warm smile and a hello. She touched thousands of lives with her warm sunny disposition and her generous nature. Mary Beth performed many selfless acts of kindness with her concern for others and diligently provided encouragement through letters and phone calls to countless family and friends. She is survived by her three sisters, Janice Gay Mcindoe of Wyckoff, NJ, Lynette Sell of Pittsburgh, PA,and Martha Currie of Doylestown, PA, her two daughters, Heather Baxter and Amy Reiber and her husband Tom Reiber. She is also survived by her grandchildren Katherine Reiber, Molly Reiber and Benjamin Reiber and many nieces and nephews. Thank you Mom for your boundless love, support, laughter and joy. Thank you Mom for your creativity and love of gardens. Thank you Gam for your fun nature and your ability to care and laugh. Thank you Gam for listening and caring, teaching us how to paint, playing games and watching movies with us.Thank you mother for your shining light that illuminated the world around you, filled with love, kindness, caring, joy,friendship and your beautiful laughter. You will be missed each and every moment of everyday, but we are all better for knowing and loving you. A memorial service will be held September 24,2011.

Bill Beck, my dearest friend from first grade on. Bill taught me how to do the butterfly and his brother got me playing the guitar.  Our families were like one and we shared the same maid Laura who kept us straight when we were young.
South Hills CC as kids all summer in the pool to sailing with Bill in the Chessie and in the Windward playing golf the last few years in Naples and Boca.
I will never forget him and miss him all the fond many memories.  George, I will be hoisting a scotch for him on the 7th of March and will call his brother Dick too. 
God Bless Bill Beck.....never angry, never a bad day and never said a bad thing about anyone.  Wish we all could be more like Bill Beck.

"George" Beck - January 31st, 2012

Bill loved the class of 62!  He loved you all.   It's hard to believe its been 5years (on March 7th) that Billy has been gone. 

He would tell you to toast a scotch to him, and dance like you mean it!  Life is short, love!

After College Jay and I became friends again.  I belonged to The  Young Republican,  I Greeted people at the door.  Jay appeared one night and we connected.  

He had a party at his "Cool" Apartment. I loved the wall of Beer.
Jay and his friends had to drink a lot of beer for Jay to make the wall. 
It was a great piece of Art.
As I entered
 I Saw the wall, walked over and pick out a Beer Can which caused the whole wall to collapse!
Surrounded by beer cans .. I was surpried and wanted to hide 
Jay said, Julie it time for a change. Everyone there was laughing as we gathered the cans for the trash. I miss you Jay..running all over Pittsburgh .
Jay was a gentle soul who loved life.

May 8,1944- April 9,2007


"She  had  everything  but  years" shared  one  friend  on  learning  of  the  Easter

Sunday  death of Kathryn  Roby  Bingham of Norfolk,  Virginia.    Known as  "The Book

Lady of Ghent," Ms. Bingham is survived by her son, J. Littleton Glover Ill of  London,  United  Kingdom;  daughter  and  son-in-law, Mr.  and  Mrs. Andrew Kreeger  Ulsh  (Bingham)  and  their  son  "Drew"  of  Newnan,  GA;  her  golden retriever companion "Lily''; niece Christine Van de Mark and nephews John and Michael Mitchell.


Choosing  a career  move to Virginia,  she chose  Norfolk,  living a stone's  throw from the birthplace of her beloved father, Christopher Frank Bingham.


A loyal aficionado of the fiber arts,   Kathryn could  make  or  do  anything with  a piece of cloth.  Her keen interest in the arts drew her to pursue programs at the Chrysler  Museum,   where   she  assumed   various   volunteer  and  professional positions,  as  well  as the Moses-Meyers  Museum  House  in historic  downtown Norfolk.   Many  a  visitor remarked,  "we  could  always rely  on  Kathryn  to do  a stunning flower design in the entryway."


Her  knitting  friends  added,  "The  walls  of the home  she  cherished  serve  as  a backdrop  for a  treasure  trove  of  artistry she  produced over  several  decades. We'll miss  her  style, her  robust  sense  of humor  at our shows  and what  about those  great  treats  she  could  whip  up  on  cue?  Rachel   Ray  had  nothing on Kathryn!"


Christened  in  the  Episcopal   Diocese   of  Pittsburgh,  PA,  Kathryn  began  her lifelong faith  journey  with  a  loving  God.     Throughout  her  life,  all  recall her overwhelming  compassion for those less fortunate, with a focus on children. "She didn't just talk the talk but walked the walk.  When you needed it, Kathryn would give you the shirt off her back or the homemade  soup in her kitchen."   Many a congregant  at  Christ  St.  Luke's  Episcopal  Church  rave  about  the  homemade treats she has shared over the years after the services.


Kathryn graduated high school as a National Merit Scholar.   After receiving  her B.A. in 1966 from Sweet Briar College, she pursued an M.A. in social work at the University     of    Virginia.          She     married J.    Littleton     Glover     Jr., father of Littleton & Bingham, on June 9, 1967 at Grace Episcopal Church of Cismont, VA.


The  young couple  moved  to Newnan,  Georgia.   Kathryn's  career  with  children began  as an elementary  teacher at Western  School as the first grade  teacher and she continued in this same position at The Heritage School thereafter.   She later finalized her earlier graduate work at the University of Virginia by enrolling at Smith  College,  earning her  Master's  in  Social  Work  (MSW)  qualifying  as  a Clinical Social Worker, licensed by the Commonwealth  of Virginia.   Additionally, she       did       post-graduate       work       in       play       therapy       with children. Her field placement affiliated with the
