Mary Helen Branigan Baldwin ’40

Mary Helen Branigin Baldwin ’40, February 19, 2005, in Washington, following a long illness. Branny received a BA in biology from Reed, did graduate study at Oregon Health Sciences University in microbiology, and became a medical technologist. In 1942, she married Fred H. Baldwin; they had three children, and lived in Marysville, Washington. The family traveled extensively, and enjoyed hiking and swimming—the latter at Crabapple Lake where they had a cabin. Baldwin was a member of the Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Church, and volunteered in the ’70s for the Everett, Washington, blood bank, and in disaster relief for winter floods. Survivors include her children, seven grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. Her husband predeceased her.
