Mary Ann Currier 1923 - 2013

PRESQUE ISLE/St. Agatha - Mary Ann Currier died peacefully at Leisure Village in Presque Isle on March 13, 2013. She was born in Fort Fairfield on January 3, 1923, daughter of George and Elsie Reed. Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 36 years, Phil Currier; son, Ned Berce (Carol); two daughters, Jill de Vries (Ewout) and Tobin Champanier (Norman); stepsons, Skip Currier and Joe (Liz) Currier, ten grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She is also survived by niece, Judy Edmunds, who has been a very attentive companion since Mary Ann and Phil moved to Presque Isle.

MaryAnn was married to Woodbury Berce Jr. for 27 years. She and Woody raised their children in Fort Fairfield and at their camp at Long Lake in St. Agatha. After Woody’s untimely death in 1974, she married Phil Currier in 1977. With Phil she enjoyed many wonderful years of winters in Florida, cruises in the Caribbean and Europe, and summers at Cross Lake. In 2007 they moved permanently to Leisure Village in Presque Isle. Mary Ann would be the first to tell you that she was very fortunate to have enjoyed two happy marriages.

No services are being held at the request of MaryAnn, but the family will gather at the Berce home on Long Lake to celebrate her life at the top of the hill at Berce Farms, which offers a magnificent view of the lake and the hills beyond the other side. She died peacefully knowing that she would be at rest forever in a location of unparalleled beauty and many happy memories.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Leisure Village for the special care and attention extended to Mary Ann and Phil these past years. They have gone above the beyond their responsibilities.
