“Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.”
- Walt Whitman
We are sad to announce the passing of our beautiful mother, Mary Beatrice Moore (née McCarthy) on March 7, 2020. Born in Quebec City, Mary was the loving mother of Janet, Barbara and Bruce, mother in law of Peter, Paul and Celia, sister of Helen Hooper and cherished Grandma of Sarah, Connor, Georgia and Liam. Mary lived a life of laughter, love and faith. She faced life’s inevitable adversities with perseverance and a smile. She loved travelling, the colour blue and good Scotch whisky. Wherever she lived, Mary was committed to her community; she was particularly passionate about helping new Canadians settle into life in Canada. Mary’s spirit will live on her children and grandchildren. She will be remembered for the small things in life, helping out, talking with strangers and seeing the humour in life.
For those who wish, donations may be made to The Good Shepherd, an inner-city homeless shelter or to the St. Vincent de Paul Society St. Clement Parish.
