. Foral, Mayme Julia (O'Connor) died on Nov. 27, 2010 of natural causes.

Born in Northern Wisconsin on Jan. 2, 1916. Mayme and her husband Marvin moved to Doylestown in 1950. She volunteered at the Doylestown Hospital for more than 43 years. She delivered meals-on-wheels and was also a Brownie Scout leader. Most of all, she elevated homemaking to an art form. A supreme cook and baker, she also did all forms of needlework, creating crocheted tableclothes, bedspreads and quilting countless coverlets, refusing the help of a machine.

As a scout leader, she once volunteered to demonstrate woodcarving, "because no one else would volunteer." She eventually became the first aid demonstrator after suffering from a nasty cut.

In he mid 50's, she became a world traveler. She climbed the Great Wall, saw the Pyramids and Ayer's Rock. After visiting six continents with her Electronic Scientist husband, (they were counted by Russian spies in Moscow) she declared, "home was best." She is survived by her husband of 74 years Marvin J. Foral of New Seasons of New Britian; a son Thomas J. Foral and his partner Joseph Patton, both of Doylestown; a daughter Nancy F. Andal and son-in-law Andres H. Andal of Glenmoore; two grandsons Paul J. Andal of Boca Raton, Fla. and Michael P. Andal of Lambertville, N.J.; and a beloved great granddaughter Justine Andal, also of Boca Raton.

Burial will be private. A memorial reception is being planned for Saturday, Dec. 4.
