Condolence from Ron Kroesen on May 29th, 2020 10:53 am

Mary you will be sadly missed by your family and many friends. Although she had many sadness’s in her life she always had that beautiful smile and positive outlook. It’s seldom that you find an individual that can lift your spirits by just being with them but Mary was that type of person. She was a bright light in this sometimes dark world. She is now with the Lord, whom she loved so much, and her smiling face will be sorely missed. John and Danaca I pray that you will be comforted knowing that Mary is now in heaven, walking happily with Catherine and her Lord. She will be loved in heaven, just as she was loved on earth.

Condolence from Ann Marie Bonifacio on May 29th, 2020 11:19 am

My most heartfelt condolences to John and family. Mary always had a big smile on her face and always perky ready to attempt anything with the CWL. She was always a delight to be with. I am very sorry for the loss of a great member of the community of Bolton. Find some strength and continue with your faith of the great memories you spent together.

Condolence from Karen/Julio DiCresce on May 29th, 2020 11:21 am

Mary was a good friend and a great listener. I will miss our discussions over lunch and discussions of family. Truly Mary was a wonderful caring person and will be missed.

Condolence from Toni De Luca on May 29th, 2020 12:06 pm

My condolences to the entire family.

My sister and I (as well as my late mother) had the privilege of meeting Mary when she was at MacKenzie Health Regional Hospital this past Fall, 2019. She shared the same room with my dear late mother, Vita Adamo. Whenever I went to visit, Mary always had a beautiful smile on her face which lit up the room and we kept in touch by texting since then. Will miss Mary’s messages and may she Rest in Eternal Peace with our Lord in Heaven.

Mary and John and family were our next door neighbours for 20 years or so. She was always the “to go to person” for information about what was going on in our community. She seemed to know everybody and was such an asset to our community. She was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. Goodbye dear friend.

Condolence from Adrianne on May 29th, 2020 2:26 pm

Danaca and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful, caring and terrific lady! Whenever we played together or had sleepovers, your mom was always there with our snacks and treats and full of fun ideas! She always made me feel so welcome – like it was a home away from home. I am sending you a big virtual hug during this tough time and am thinking of you all.

Love Adrianne (Di Cresce) Kenmir

Dear John, Danaca, Peter, Johnny, Daniel & Kyle and family,
How we wish we could say or do more than share a few words of condolence here. But, you already know what is in our hearts, and how much we will miss our Mary. We will cherish the memories of all the years on Birchview Cres., all the happy times and even the rough ones. We will laugh again at funny stories and remembrances of bus trips, cottage days, back to school shopping, crafting & garage sales, staying up into the wee hours drinking tea and talking…… We will long for the times when we held each others’ hands and cried on a shoulder or gave each other a pep talk! Thank you for sharing her with us. We are keeping you in our thoughts & prayers, always.
Love Bill & Ann

Condolence from Dawn Baumgardner on May 30th, 2020 10:20 am

It often goes unnoticed and unmentioned, yet, it is such a powerful gift that should be shared. We seldom know how far, or who, a person’s life will impact. Mary (and Catherine) have left their indelible, beautiful marks on my heart. Without ever knowing it, they have inspired, motivated, and shaped so much of who I am. I have learned from them, cried with them, hoped with them, and loved them. Mary’s example of a mother’s strong and tender love, her tenacious learning and advocacy, and her selfless ability to share her smile and warmth are blessings and lessons I pray to emulate every day of my life.
To her precious family… I am so very, very sorry for your enormous loss. May Mary’s bright light shine in each of you. May God give you strength and peace. May your memories comfort you. You are blessed.

With Sincere Sympathy and Prayers,
Dawn Baumgardner
