Mary is also survived by her dear sister Margaret Johnston and husband Peter of Devon, England.
A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Mary will be fondly remembered for her kindness and great generosity. Mary was tremendously dedicated to her career and her passion and drive were legendary. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, either personally or professionally.
