Remembering ‘Miss Bradley Cunningham’ with great fondness. My locker was just outside Mr. Cunningham’s room. I remember them both at Thorncrest plaza too!

Wonderful people!

Mary Broadley was my home economics teacher all those years ago at Royal York Collegiate and I have always remembered her as the only unrelated "Broadley" I ever knew. She taught us many things in her course but the one I most remember was the making of a "white sauce" (without lumps). That recipe has stood me in good stead these many years for basic to gourmet sauces to enhance my food. I have passed the process on to many others but have Miss Mary to thank for my skill. She was kind, friendly and a natural teacher. I am glad to know that she has had such a long and seemingly happy life.

I have so many fond memories of Mary from Bloor Street United. She looked after me in the church nursery (which I actually don't remember). As I was growing up she always took and interest in me (and all the other kids around Bloor Street. She was a wonderful person.
