Mary vacations in Costa Rica SCMR’s co-founder and president, Mary Louise Dube’, passed peacefully in December 2014 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. Our hearts are broken to say farewell to our sweet Mary. She is survived by her husband Richard.

She was a passionate advocate for animals and a wealth of knowledge and information. She served on the board of directors for the McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center in Chattanooga, TN. She was retired from Unum where she served as Director of Purchasing and Outsource Management.

Mary worked for Unum for over 30 years. She earned an Associate of Science Degree in Wildlife Management from Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Westbrook College in Portland, Maine while working full-time. She was a skilled horticulturist specializing in African Violets and Orchids. And she was a treasured friend.

Mary saved many little lives and made a huge difference not only for them but for all who were blessed to know her. Donations to SCMR made in her memory are tax-deductible.
