Mary was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister and school teacher.
The loves in her life beside her husband and son included her teaching career, farm life, curling and her never ending love of gardening and flower shows!
If there was a family function Mary was always either hosting at the farm or part of the catering to insure all had enough to eat! She loved to call Lewis Shaw her brother in law and pretend to be Thelma - always up for a laugh with those close to her!
The family all loves you and now it is time to enjoy a dance once more with Laurance..
Cremation will be followed by a private family service next summer with internment in the Marwayne Cemetery.
Donations in the memory of Mary may be made to the Charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
