In the early dawn of June 26, 2023, Mary, in her 94th year, beloved wife of 67 years to Astor and devoted and loving Mother to Sandra and Rick, passed peacefully in her sleep at home just as she wished, with Astor holding her hand. She was an exceptional mother-in-law to Rick (LePage) and Carol Hanslep who loved her dearly. To say she was a proud and doting grandmother would be an understatement. Meghan, Ryan, Cameron, Kyle, and Erin will miss their Maya with their whole hearts. Great grandchildren of the heart, Isla, Rylee, Willow, and Logan brought her much happiness.
While we are all feeling lost without her, we will carry on with so many joyful, happy, and enduring memories in our hearts. She taught us what it means to love unconditionally, to always be kind and forgiving and that family means everything. Rest now beautiful Maya.
The family would like to offer our endless gratitude to Mom’s devoted and loving caregivers, Anneta and Mickayla. You are a remarkable woman.
