Mary Brackley Obituary

Mary A. Brackley, 75 of Wells, passed away September 20, 2023 in Kennebunk Nursing Home and Rehab after a period of failing health.

Mary was born in North Berwick to Leslie and Ardis Ford. She was also raised by her Aunt Florence Linscott. Mary graduated from North Berwick High School in 1968, she then attended and graduated from Portsmouth Vocational Technical School with her License in Practical Nursing.  Mary went on to practice nursing at Goodall Hospital in Sanford, Maine.

In 1979 along with Mickey Robichaud, they welcomed twin daughters Sarah and Megan Robichaud. Her girls were her greatest blessing.

Mary later married Robert (Bob) Brackley and lived happily until his passing in 2009.

Although Mary struggled with her M.S. from the time her girls were six-month-old, it never kept her down. She was always “out and about”. There isn’t anything she loved more than to be driving and shopping.

Mary is predeceased by her father Leslie Ford, her mother Ardis Ford, her Aunt Florence Linscott and husband Bob Brackley. Adoptive Mother and Father John and Barbara Robichaud.


She is survived by her daughters Sarah Robichaud and partner Justin Denbow, Megan Robichaud Petrus and husband Sean Petrus, her sister Evelyn Lyn and husband John. Her children’s other parent Mickey Robichaud and her partner Ruth Ridley. Grandsons, Tyler Robichaud, Isaac Schuhmacher and Kai Petrus along with her Granddaughter Emma Hollins. Bonus grandchildren Beth and Bill Brackley.
