Mary M. Adamitis, née Murphy, passed away on August 31, 2019, in Annapolis, MD. Born on November 7, 1940, in Sharon, CT, Mary grew up on her family’s farm in Amenia, NY and later graduated from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. In 1963, she married her college sweetheart, Lawrence R. Adamitis, now deceased, and together they went on to raise five children. Mary also put her endless patience, creativity, and intelligence to good use teaching countless elementary school students in upstate New York, as well as in Lewes, Delaware, where she and Lawrence ultimately retired. They loved to watch the ocean, whatever the season, and to read, travel, and spend time with family. Mary spent her last years in Maryland, near two of her daughters and entertaining frequent visits from family and friends. She is survived by her children, Jennifer Ray, Anastasia Benson, Lawrence Adamitis, Elizabeth Adamitis, and Katherine Adamitis, and twelve grandchildren.
