McCLELLAND, Mary  - Age 80 years. It is with great sadness that we announce that Mary Elizabeth McClelland (nee French) passed away on Monday, January 14, 2019, after a courageous battle against cancer. 

Mary passed as she wished to in her room at Bowmanville Creek Retirement Community with her children by her side.  

Mary was born on December 18, 1938, and is predeceased by her parents Mary and Howard French.  Mary is survived by her dear brother and sister-in-law, Arthur and Gerry French; her children Todd (Wendy) McClelland, Bob (Laura) McClelland, Deb (Jim) Pimentel; her 7 grandchildren Jennifer and Julia McClelland, Amy, Eliza and Olivia McClelland, Michael and Matthew Pimentel, and several nieces and nephews.  

Two celebrations of Mary's life will be held:  

The first celebration will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 19 at St. Paul's United Church, 178 Church Street, Bowmanville, Ontario.  Visitation with the family will be available in the church one hour before the service (10:00 to 11:00 am). 

Donations to Durham Regional Cancer Center or Metropolitan Hospital in Windsor would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.

The second celebration of Mary's life will be held in Windsor, Ontario in May, 2019.  Arrangements to be made.  

Mary's children are eternally grateful to the many family members, friends and care-givers who helped make Mom's last few years so wonderful!!
