Mary passed away peacefully following a long illness.

Her family meant the world to Mary, and they will miss her very much.

Mary enjoyed happy days with family and friends in Cass Lake Woods where she was a long-time resident and former member of the Canasta Club. She had wonderful memories of days spent at the beach and on the lake. She was an excellent baker of cakes and wonderful hostess who loved to entertain. Mary and Chuck spent good times riding snowmobiles and motorbikes at their cabin up north and enjoying many travel adventures together in their retirement years. Mary was proud of her Scottish heritage and extended family in Scotland, and she encouraged visits back and forth across the pond between family members that continue still today.
