Passed away after an amazing journey, peacefully surrounded by family at the age of 81. Mary is back in the arms of her Heavenly Father. Beloved wife to Robert, and amazing sister to Shirley and Patricia. Loving and caring mother to Allan, Barry, Cathy (Brian), Daria (Frank), Elizabeth (1959) and Danny.
