About the Book
This book is about my mother, who was called, Mary, Mac, Meme, Steamer, Beckman, Gabby or Babby, just to list a few of her nicknames. Mary was born in Brookline, Massachusetts to loving parents who, by her own words, “spoiled” her. The book chronicles her life from childhood years, to debutant years, to first and second marriages and further.
Included are many beautiful old photographs revived from various family members' albums. The pages document her accomplishments and those quirky moments that made her so special and so unique.
