So sorry to hear. Remember her and all of the good times on Daly Ave. She was always such a nice girl and I have nothing but fond memories of her.
Mary was so kind

I got to know Mary when my parents lived at Cedarcroft and shared a table in the dining room with Alice. Often, Mom would call and tell me about a kindness that Mary did. One of my fondest memories is of coming upon Mary playing Chinese checkers with Alice outside in the shade of a tree.

May she rest in peace.
