On Sunday, October 18th, longtime friends of Mary T. Dial met to express their sadness after learning that Mary died Monday, October 12 at her home in Clayton, where she was under the care of the Hospice of Jefferson Country and her Healthcare Providers. Last summer, in September 2014, Janet Sullins wrote: A Special Thanks to Mary Dial. Rather than just thanking Mary Dial and her late husband, Morse, for their many philanthropic gifts given to the North Country, a local committee, including Mary Mascott and Carol Munro, established the Dial Scholarship Endowment at SUNY Potsdam. The endowment provides annual scholarships to students from St Lawrence, Jefferson and Lewis Counties, hoping to study the Arts at Potsdam. And better still, the majority of the gifts given in support of the scholarship endowment were matched by the Northern New York Community Foundation.
