Having delighted in a pleasantly busy life, and after a brief encounter with cancer, Mary passed away peacefully at the Agapé Hospice in Calgary, AB. on Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at the age of 66 years.
She leaves, with such laughter and fun, her husband Pierre; her son Matthew and wife Julia Arkos; and her daughter Megan and her partner Hayley Wood.
Mary shared her life in Calgary with her sister Chris (Arto), her brother Will (Fran) and her nephews, Andrew, Jeff and Richard Bone. The Quebec group – with whom Mary loved to visit, Louise and Georges, Suzanne and the late Elisabeth. Paul, her beau-frère, lives in Quebec City, PQ. Her best friends, Sally Goss and Janie Kelly, living in Halifax, NS and Kingston, ON were always but a phone call away.
Mary graduated from the Montreal General Hospital in 1964, and immediately went to Boston where she worked in paediatrics at the Mass General for 5 years. She returned to Montreal where she spent 2 years at the Children’s Hospital before moving to Calgary. After a brief stint at the Foothills Hospital, Mary spent the next 25 years at the Alberta Children’s Hospital in the Endocrine Clinic.
