After retirement, Mary and Don split their time between Niagara-on-the-Lake and Lake Seminole, Florida, returning to Kingston in 2005. Don died in 2011, after 71 years of marriage.  At the time of her death, Mary was living at Rideaucrest Home, where she was a competitive dart and euchre player, golfer, curler and Wii bowler. 

Cremation has taken place.  A burial service and celebration of Mary's Life will be held later in Niagara Falls.  Memorial donations to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation in Mary's name would be appreciated by the family.
