“For all these years Colthurst has been Mary Helen’s love. “We didn’t want to live anywhere else,” she says. It was indeed the perfect setting in which to raise a family and pursue a very full life.

I asked Mary Helen if bringing the hunters back, with their calls of “Tally Ho!” as they galloped across our lawns, would help to ameliorate our current “deer problem”. She and I both agreed to leave that question a moot point.”— Florence Fitzgerald interviewed Mary Helen for the June 1993 Colthurst News.
