  1. Stan & Karen, and families,

    We are so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing, I remember her as a feisty lady with a good heart, I also remember the terrific cook she was. I especially loved her borscht and cabbage rolls, we would all be lined up at her trailer door at Lac la Nonne after following the incredible aroma of her cooking that enveloped the campground, and she never turned us away.

    She truly will be missed. Thinking of you all in your sorrow.

    Love from Chloe & Roy and families
