CURRIE, Mary  -  It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Mary Patricia Currie (McGinn), loving wife of John Currie (deceased) and beloved mother of Mary Kate and Michael, on Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Mary died peacefully, at Sunnybrook Hospital, after a sudden illness.

Mary was born in 1937 and was a lifelong Torontonian. Mary attended St. Peter's and St. Anselm's grade schools, followed by Loretto Abbey.

She graduated from St. Michael's School of Nursing in 1959 as a Registered Nurse and had a long and fulfilling career in healthcare.

Mary worked at St. Michael's Hospital, the Canadian Cancer Society, St. Elizabeth Visiting Nurses, completed a long-term care certificate at Ryerson and established her own eldercare company.

Mom loved being a nurse, and it showed. Mary's greatest joy however was her family.

Mary married her husband Jack in 1961 and moved to Leaside soon after, where they raised their two children and attended St. Anselm's Parish. In 2000, they moved to Blessed Trinity Parish where they made many more wonderful friends.

Mary and Jack also enjoyed being Florida snowbirds for many years. Mom was a tall, elegant lady, who loved music, dancing, fashion, travelling, meeting new people and spending time with family and old friends. She had a big, kind heart, a ready smile and loved to have fun.

The family will receive friends at the Holy Cross Funeral Home, Thornhill, on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 5-8 p.m. and at Blessed Trinity Parish (3220 Bayview Ave, North York), from 10-11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 4th.

A funeral mass will follow at 11 a.m. at Blessed Trinity Parish. Mary will be buried in Thornhill alongside her husband John, and her parents Joseph Patrick and Mary Kathleen McGinn.
