Born in Toronto on February 18, 1922, Mary experienced many changes in her 98 years of life. During WW2, she worked in an armament factory. Mary spent most of her life in Scarborough, where Mary and Cyril raised their children with love and firm values.
The family home always was a welcoming place for friends and relatives, with food, laughter and tea. Mary found great comfort living out her remaining years with Teresa and Ted, with the help of her wonderful caregivers Kathy and Mandy. A special thank you to cousins, Stacey and Linda.
There will be a private service for immediate family. At a future date there will be a mass at St. Dunstan Church, followed by a Celebration of Life. Arrangements with Paul O'Connor funeral home, Scarborough.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Covenant House or Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
