Mary  Reville

Obituary of Mary Forsyth Reville

Mary (Bibs) Forsyth Reville died at her home in Rye, New York on September 27, 2020. She was 95 years old and lived them well. Bibs was born on Christmas Day 1924; the first baby born at the then newly built St. Mary’s Hospital in Fredricton, New Brunswick, Canada. She was proud to be one of the four daughters of Volney King Forsyth and Mary O’Neill Forsyth. She grew up in Scarsdale, New York and spent her summers at her beloved Grand Lake in Jemseg, New Brunswick. Bibs made dear and lasting friends at The Ursuline School in New Rochelle, New York and Trin- ity College in Washington D.C. She married Philip Curry Reville on January 29, 1949. They raised a large and boisterous family of six daughters and two sons in Scarsdale, New York. The family shares fond memories of summers in Twin Lakes, CT and Grand Lake, New Brunswick. Bibs was a woman of profound faith. She was sustained by her Catholicism in times of great sorrow and great joy. She thanked God daily for her family, her countless friends and the beau- tiful places that she was able to call home over the course of her life. Bibs’ children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will forever be shaped by her compas- sion, kindness, zest for life and boundless love. She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Philip Reville, and by her daughters Volney Ann and Martha. She is survived by her sister Volney Forsyth Dawson, her Godchild Alexa Mc- Cray (Larry McCray), her children Susan Reville (William Friedrich), Patricia Reville (David Don- aldson), Cynthia Reville Peabody (Charles Peabody), Philip Curry Reville (Suzanne Myette), Elizabeth Reville, and Peter Reville (Susan McNiven Reville) Bibs’ eighteen grandchildren will sorely miss their lively, loving Grammy as will her six great grandchildren. And all will all remember her favourite refrain, “jangle gently dear”. The family will receive friends at the Graham Funeral Home on Wednesday September 30, 2020 from 4:00-7:00 PM.
