She had a kind soul and I will miss her and our regular coffee visits the most. May she RIP.

I met Mary the first day I started at the Miller Centre. She always had a smile on her face and would always tell us about her travels.

To all the families:

So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I worked with Mary at the old General Hospital and the HSC. In the past she hosted some wonderful parties at her place on Forest Road. Mary loved to travel and would always bring back a little something for everyone she knew. Mary had a big heart and a lovely smile. She would have really appreciated the stunning photo of her on the website. May her gentle soul RIP.💐💐😘😘

So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I worked at the HSC and remember Mary with a smile and a kind heart. May she fly high with the angels.

I worked alongside Mary at the HSC for many years & loved her sense of humour & when she’d see me coming she’d say “ & what can I do for you this time?” or something like that.😊
Deepest condolences to her family, friends & past coworkers.

Mary was the ward clerk on the unit I worked. She was a great worker who kept the staff organized and the flow of the unit working efficiently. She always had a smile. I met her many years ago in the hospital and she gave me a pair of earrings. She was always helping out staff and families on the unit. Sorry to hear of her passing.

I am so very sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. Mary and I were great friends for many years starting as coworkers the HSC and for years after that.
We had so much fun together and I loved our times drinking our favourite Italian wines and listening to Dean Martin.
Sadly after my husband Paul got sick I didn’t see Mary as I as I would have loved to.
I hope they are both celebrating in Heaven
I love you Mary. I’ll never forget you. You will always live in my heart. Until we meet again.
Your friend always,Donna (Carroll) Kelly xxoo

Mary was a ward clerk on 4NA for many years. She had a dry sense of humor and could always be counted on for a laugh. Condolences to her family and friends.
