Richard & Maude Ferry
Maude was Richard’s silent partner, goodwill ambassador and corporate wife, but was foremost a dedicated mother to their children and was actively engaged in their education and after-school activities. She contributed generously of her time to many volunteer positions throughout the years. When their youngest child left for boarding school, Maude returned to the business world to become a real estate agent in San Marino, California where she was quite successful and often a top producer in her office. She spent her leisure time playing tennis and studying pottery, art and music. When she later discovered golf, she and Richard advanced their skills on many courses across the world. Maude and Richard have been married for 62 years and are the proud parents of six wonderful children, as well as twelve cherished grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
Throughout the years, Richard and Maude have been passionately engaged in their community and have supported numerous civic and charitable causes, with a particular focus on the Catholic Church, education and health care. They are both members of the Order of Malta, the Order of St. Gregory and the Crozier Society of the Archdiocese of Seattle. They pray that the Richard and Maude Ferry Foundation will carry on their tradition of philanthropy through the compassionate and charitable acts of the beloved generations to follow.
