Leon, Norma and family,
We were deeply saddened to hear of Mary’s untimely passing. For the past 34 years she had been a close friend, and we loved her dearly.
We spent many a happy hour playing cards and bingo with both Mary and Earle during those wonderful summer days in Port Joli, listening to Earle’s many stories and loving Mary’s lobster rolls. In recent times we would talk for hours on the phone, enjoying how brightly Mary regarded life.
It was a joy to hear her voice. We will certainly miss her presence in our lives.

Diane Page Hogan
I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Mary’s passing in March. Ben and I were planning to visit her in May when we come to Nova Scotia. We saw her last in 2005 when we took her to visit Rockland. She lived a full life and appreciated being so close to her family. Our sympathies are with you at this time of grief.
Like Mary, my mother and I are regulars at the Dairy Treat. It was always reassuring to see Mary smile and wave when we walked through the door. She was a warm, outgoing, wonderful woman and we will really miss her. And we will always remember her smile..
Jan and Eloise Pottie.
