    So sorry for the loss of your lovely mother. I will always have fond memories of Mary creating pysanka eggs with the children and her wonderful Easter bread, which had no rival. Mary had a lot of curve balls thrown at her over the years, but she always dealt with everything with grace and a strong spirit. Much love, Katrina, Matthew, Sebastian, Dominic, Quinn and Olivia.

To say she will be missed is an understatement. She touched many lives and had unmatched kindness in her heart.
