Mary’s favorite happy place was sitting on her swing in the back yard with her best friend and companion, her dog Buddie. They would sit there for hours enjoying the various birds and their singing and admiring the beautiful array of colorful flowers that she grew.
Mary worked in her earlier years as a switchboard operator at St. Peter’s Hospital, later at the Bank of Montreal, Lawyer’s office and her final job that she was so proud of was Deputy Sheriff at the Melville Court House.
Her passing has left a huge void for this strong, loving and attentive matriarchy within her family. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
