RiverWoods Manchester

A vibrant community of older adults passionate about living their best life, RiverWoods Manchester offers the cultural variety of nearby downtown Manchester within a peaceful, country setting.

RiverWoods Durham

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.
