Mae retired from AMP, Inc. as a packer after 34 years of service. At work she was known as the “coffee lady” as she always had a hot pot on. Mae was a member of Mount Joy Church of God where she prepared meals of COGS and covered books for the library.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Arthur and Ralph Kauffman; and four sisters, Sadie Dupler, Pauline Dohner, Romaine Seitz and Violet Dohner.
