ROGERS, Mary (Gallant) Rogers   -  1929- 2020   Mary/Mom/Nanny passed away on June 14, 2020 in her home in Pickering Ontario surrounded by her loving family. 

Mary Judith Gallant was born October 19, 1929 in Hope River PEI to Joseph O and Faustina Gallant the eleventh of their twelve  children. 

On January 2, 1950, in Toronto Ontario she married the love of her life, Howard William Rogers. 

She is the beloved mother of their 8 children, Norman (Charlene), Linda (Bert), Lena, Robert (Kathy), John Armand (Cynthia), Richard (Karen), Cathy (Stephen), and Nancy (Gord). 

Cherished Grandmother/Nanny to Jaime, Kevin (Rachel), Mark (Joelle), Jason (Nicole), Brendan, Ashley, Lindsay (Jordan), Eric, Melissa (Jordan), Megan, Cameron (Tori), Jackson, Caeden, Kelsy (Matt), Alana, Jacqueline (Marco), Kristy (Chris), John and Rhiannon, and her great grandchildren Sasha, Gwen, Taya, Tristan, Nash, Miller, Wade, Tanner, Alessia, and Skylar. 

She was predeceased by her loving parents (Joseph and Faustina Gallant) and brothers and sisters (Melina, John James, Lucy, Martin, Margaret, Sophie, Albert, Eva, Amos and Kathleen), her youngest daughter Nancy and her great-grandson Brayden. She is  survived by her brother Vincent. 

She loved life and passed her passion for living it to her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Going forward many of us will take comfort wrapped in her “Created with Love by Mom” quilts, afghans, mittens, hats, and sweaters. Her work here is done but her legacy will live on. 

There will be a private family service with a Celebration of Life planned for later this year.

In lieu of flowers a donation to the Canadian Kidney Foundation (www.kidney.ca) would be appreciated.
