Survived by her children David (Dawne), Stephen (Deb), Mark (Loretta), Greg (Debbie) and Victoria (Luch). Lovingly remembered by her 5 grandchildren, 7 step- grandchildren and 6 step- great-grandchildren. Survived by brothers Tom (Gladys) and Joe (Kathleen), predeceased by brothers John and William. Sadly missed by longtime family friends Oliver and Marie McCloskey and family.
Friends may call at the Marshall Funeral Home, Richmond Hill, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday. Funeral Mass in St. Mary Immaculate (10295 Yonge Street), on Thursday at 10 a.m. Mary came to Canada with two small children to join her husband in 1956.
Crossing the Atlantic alone by ship was just the beginning of the adventure she was about to embark on. A full time homemaker, Mary raised five children on a tight budget, a testament to her accounting background.
In the community of Wildfield she was a member of the CWL and together with her husband conducted the local church choir and made many close friends. They also ran a successful honey business, raising bees and marketing the honey at local markets.
Family was very important to Mary and she loved to fuss over her grandchildren. She will be sorely missed.
