Deepest sympathy to all the family.Mary was a lovely lady and a great cook.I boarded with her when i began my nursing career at the Grace.She always made sure i had plenty of lunch when i went to work.God Bless

Mary was such a kind and gentle lady and a faithful believer. Her long wait to be with her Saviour is finally over. We’re sad to see her go, but happy for her in her heavenly home. Our sincere sympathies to the family.

You have our deepest sympathy at the home call of your mother, Mary. She was such a kind, gracious woman, with a beautiful Christian testimony. Mary touched the hearts of many throughout her years and will be greatly missed.
May it comfort you to know that your mother has rest and peace in heaven in the presence of her Lord.
