Live an Independent Life in Exeter, New Hampshire
A retirement community for active and independent adults.
Maryanna Hatch, Our Inspiring Founder (1922-2022)
Today, we mourn a world-changer, a mother, a wife, an activist, and a friend. Maryanna Hatch, one of our two beloved founders, has passed today, September 23, 2022, at the age of 99. She will be deeply missed by her children, family, and her RiverWoods family of friends.
A petite, soft-spoken woman with a fluffy, signature cloud of white hair, Maryanna had an outsized impact on our world. Her gracious smile and her tenacity toppled many obstacles, as she and Rosemary Coffin (1922-2011) gathered a small group of citizens to work on a brand-new idea for how to age, in community.

I visit the Exeter farmer's market every Thursday after my yoga class. This weekend, my friends and I are going to see an exhibit at the MFA in Boston.
