Mary was a very popular member of our tennis community for many years.. she was fun-loving, honest and loyal to her friends. We also played many games of bridge together and shared our personal challenges. She was determined to be as good a mother as possible to Thomas and I am sure he will feel her loss deeply. We lost touch when she left Aurora, but always wished her the very best in her new home.. Many of her old friends have missed her.. God Rest In Peace, Mary..

I only knew Mary for a few short years but I found her to be a wonderful friend and travelling companion. She had many stories to tell of her sailing experience. Rest in peace Mary
