On June 11th, 1949 Mae married the love of her life Marvin Wickett (deceased July 1st 2008) and together they raised 4 children in New Liskeard, ON: Linda Hewitt (Michael - deceased July 5, 2014), Ron Wickett (deceased November 19 2013) ( Patricia Forget), Ruth Wickett (Jeffrey Phelps), Wendy Tremblay (Marc Tremblay). Predeceased by her parents, husband Marvin, son Ron, son-in-law Michael, sister Bea McGregor and grandson Jordan Hewitt. Also survived by her sister Joan (Kosmack) McKelvie (Dennis).

Mae and Marvin attended Community of Christ and together supported many local & third world development projects. They were actively involved in the sponsorship of a Vietnamese family in 1980 and remained friends with them until the time of Mae’s death. Mae loved her family and was a great homemaker. She loved to cook, sew, and keep a loving home for her husband and children. She welcomed many into her home from far and near and liked to host social events. In her eighties Mae developed a passion for making doll clothes. She sewed thousands of articles of clothing, dressed dolls and sent them worldwide to children in need of toys. She continued doing this into her nineties until it became too physically demanding for her. Her greatest joy was her church & her family. She had a great faith in God and tried to live her life the best way she knew. She now looks forward to reuniting with her husband, son, family & friends. May she rest peacefully.
