Mae Reid was a strong, caring woman with a good sense of humour who did not like being in the spotlight.
She dealt with challenges quietly without complaining and found comfort in her faith. Mae valued her independence right to the end, but Above all else she cherished family. Nothing brought Mae more joy, the kind that made her face light up, like being with Greg, Lindsay, Meghan, Nieve, Grace and Callum.
Mae Reid will live forever in our hearts. May we continue to be inspired by her example.
