When Mary Maxwell gives the invocation before a dinner at an Omaha senior’s center, her prayer takes a turn for the funny. With the chops of a professional comedian, Mary delivers a hilarious speech on the foibles of aging. Mary Maxwell runs a video blog, “Laughing With Mary”, on the Caregiver Stress website where she answers questions on everything from transitioning from dress shoes to sensible shoes to attending the funeral of an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. Mary has spoken at such events as the Christ Child Society Convention, the Americas Conference on Information Systems and the 2010 American Society on Aging conference. She is the mother of five and the grandmother of twelve.
