Mary worked as an Operator at Bell Canada for 25 years and retired at age 54
spending more time with Gord when he was sick while also volunteering her time with Meals on Wheels. Mary loved the outdoor life with many years spent at their cottage in Cordova and winter in Dunedin, Florida. She would spend many days at the cottage making quilts for all her family, baking, bird watching, having family and friends to visit. She enjoyed dancing, going to Tim Hortons and spending time with her family.
After she sold the cottage, she spent time at her Cabin at Shelter Valley and trailer at Golden Beach. She loved that outdoor life and passed her passions to her children and Grandchildren. Many thanks to all the team at Port Hope Extendicare where she was well taken care of for close to 7 years.
