Dear Diane, I was Mary's "big sister" in Delta Delta Delta Fraternity at U of T. The last time I saw Mary was in Toronto 2 years ago when we both received pins and lunch for being a Tri Delta for 50 years!! I have been in touch with her at Christmas for all those 50 years. I loved her dearly, and heard all about her family especially your mother and you for all this time. I'm so very sorry you've had to endure the death of your mom and of Mary over just a few months. When you are able, could you contact me? I am truly shocked that she is gone!
With sympathy and love, Nancy

So very sorry to hear of Mary's passing. We met several years ago while working at the County and she always had such a kind, caring demeanor, and friendly smile for all. Sincere sympathy to you Diane and family.
